Hi Walltoall, thanks for that! Unfortunately I sold the 2 specimens I had this morning, do you by any chance know if it grows well from seed? I still have a good sized plant growing in the garden.

You would really expect to see leaves at this stage, but all you can really do is wait to see what happens, there's no point in giving up on them just yet. Best of luck!

The tunnel is a great thing to have for the early crops! We've been eating new potatoes, carrots, spinach and salads for weeks now, still waiting on the french beans, cougettes and tomatoes. Yum!
