Next month I will be writing a review of the year, successes, failures and lessons to learn for the future.
In January I will look forward to planting by reviewing what seeds I will be buying.

Three of the ones I put in the water died. This was obvious as the foliage dried out.However the others survived and looked perky, with healthy looking colourful foliage.Tiny roots had formed.The cuttings were ready to be planted into compost in a pot.

I Planted up the rooting stem in a small pot for the winter, and put it into the greenhouse.
Here you can see what happens when sweetcorn is not fully fertised. Those seeds which are grow bigger to fill the space of those that are not. Gaps occur in the worst hit areas.
