I've never had much luck growing brassicas at home but then they take up so much space I haven't really tried too hard after the first failure (Romanesca eaten by everything, blown Brussel Sprouts)
However, today Gardening Club and I will be planting out the cabbages the pupils sowed way back in March and sowing Kale and Brocolli. I'm hoping that as we have some decent insect netting (Wondermesh) and I haven't over worked the bed they will be in (I was told Brassicas don't like newly disturbed soil?) that we should produce a decent crop of each (any advise gratefully recieved
I had hoped to get the seeds sown at the start of May but with the awfully claggy, sopping wet soil caused by the drought
I've had to delay things. Today is another dry day, so ideal for sowing seeds I think.
