Calabrese Parthenon F1

All will be sown in modules, maybe kept indoors until they germinate then put on staging in cold greenhouse. Smile

How do you get on with calabrese, Vinny? I've tried parthenon a few times but it just produced piddly little heads that flowered!

That's not what I wanted to hear PP! (eek)
I normally just grow whatever calabrese I can get a hold of cheaply. It was fine last year but the second harvest after cutting the main head was better.
I am growing Parthenon because I recently bought a head from Aldi and both myself and OH agreed it was the tastiest we had ever had.
I looked for it and ordered the F1 seeds to give it a try. Only 25 seeds so it better be good. Big Grin

PS Last year I dibbled holes in firm soil at 2 foot spacing, filled with compost and sowed direct. I did the same with curly kale and both did good.
I wonder whether its the transplanting that would send it to seed........I hope not.

I've always transplanted so that may have been the problem Sad I look forward to hearing your results!

I checked the dwarf french beans I sowed 2 weeks ago, the seeds had gone to mush so I resowed new ones. This time I just left the bean sitting on top of the damp compost and see can we get some germination.
I also shook out some wild flower and poppy seeds in a part of the garden I’m going to let grow wild. Just hope the weeds won’t over grow the flowers.

That's quite early for French beans? They don't like the cold and will go mushy if sown now. I sow mine end of April for planting outside. End of March/beginning of April for growing in the greenhouse. 

if you have trouble germinating beans- lay down very damp kitchen roll in a Tupperware pot. Put the lid on and leave somewhere warm. Check often and make sure the kitchen roll stays damp. Pot up when you see a root. I often start mine off like this as it saves space.
