Anyone else tried this pumpkin from Irish Seed Savers. I have now sown the entire packet and nothing has come up, I used the same compost etc on other pumpkin/courgette seeds and they are thriving.

Pak Choi is a kind of Chinese brassica, it is very tasty and used mostly in stir frys. I am a huge fan and it is very fast growing. Much better than lettuce!

Irish Seed Savers sells both seeds and plants, though it might be too late for the latter.
