Re: Flowering Onions

Several of my seed grown onions have just put up flower heads - I gather from the above that they should be used and not stored - OK. But what about the others in the row - can I assume that this is likely to happen along the row, and if so, can I harvest them now, a little prematurely to try and ge...

Re: Rudolph potatoes - did anyone else grow these?

Hi NB, sorry for tardy reply, I struggle to find time to get on at the moment! :cry: No, I haven't dug anymore plants up as they still look good and green at the moment. I don't think it has been a problem with moisture - certainly not over the last 6 weeks or so anyway. The other plants, onions, ca...

Rudolph potatoes - did anyone else grow these?

I had a bag of these free with my tuber order this winter and they have been growing in the same plot as the Maris Pipers, King Edwards and Desiree. All the plants have been looking healthy and just started flowering. But several of the Rudolph variety started to yellow and shrivel - so we dug them ...

Re: Channel Island Cows

In our valley where I grew up (and stayed) we were surrounded by diary herds and had a wonderful jersey herd right behind us. Although we had our normal everyday milk delivered, whenever we needed extra we would walk up the lane and into the little honesty hut where the fridge was stocked with milk,...

Re: RedLove Apples - has anyone tried/grown/eaten?

Hi Westi, I look forward to your review if you get to taste one next year! :D I am intrigued by your comment regarding the tag preventing commercial use - one of the articles about the Redlove apples mentioned that groves were being planted across Europe to bring the apples into supermarkets in the ...

Re: Summer bits and bobs

Re: RedLove Apples - has anyone tried/grown/eaten?

Mmm, thanks guys, I think before I spend that kind of money on an apple tree I will make sure I like the future fruits, otherwise I would be very silly! :oops: I am not a fan of Gala apples either.

RedLove Apples - has anyone tried/grown/eaten?
