Last year in March I got some unusual seeds from a new(for me, anyway) seed company called Incredible vegetables. Anybody who is interested in growing something a bit different should visit www.incrediblevegetables.co.uk and see for themselves.
My new seeds were Hablitzia Tamnoides, they germinated fine, I planted them out and they grew. I didn’t get much of a harvest so I thought perhaps I did something wrong there. The foliage died down and that was that.
However, I was working on my plot today, the plants were planted in one of my large net cages to protect them from being eaten by the pigeons and I noticed that there are little rosettes of growth beside the sticks that supported the plants. On close examinations I found that all four of my plants survived the winter and are ready to grow.
