After the Great Brassica Disaster of 2008, where I failed to harvest a single cabbage/broccoli/cauliflower, I swore that I would never grow them again.
However, I was looking around one of the local garden centres, and came across some nice and healthy pak choi plants. As I knew these have fairly shallow roots, I decided that a 6 plant pack would be perfect for filling a space in my new bed, which currently only has 9 inches of soil to work with.
Getting home, and looking them up on the web, told me something that I should have known. Pak Choi are of the brassica species. Since then I have compounded the situation by buying some brussels sprout plants (which I love). Will I never learn?
Currently the Pak Choi are happily protected by a cloche, and I have planted the sprouts in a grouping that should be relatively easy to net.
