Depending on the type, it won't be unusual for broccoli to need support from a stick or piece of 2x1. My purple sprouting always does.

Really? I usually have at least four types of brocolli and I have never supported one of them yet and there would be approx. 150 of them every year.

Interesting! My sprouts go the same way too. I wonder why.

Ahem.

"A novice gardener on newly cultivated, stoney ground."

It is definitely better in the sunny south east.

Don't worry, CG. He's the only bloke in Ireland who runs a market garden to feed two people.

Veg plot going great - thanks for the advice folks.



Peas, beans, lettuce, onions and parsnips flying. Broccoli is fairly slow but got decimated by slugs so maybe that's why?

I won't be self -sufficient - but its nice eating stuff I've grown myself.
