Buy pak choi 'Joi Choi' F1 pak choi - Chinese cabbage or Brassica rapa (Chinensis Group) 'Joi Choi' F1: A handsome and tasty oriental vegetable

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist but well drained

    This beautiful-looking oriental vegetable looks delicate and very elegant with its broad pure white midribs and sculptural fluted shape. But it's bone hardy and can withstand even the fiercest of weather, making it the perfect winter salad ingredient. Mature plants can be cooked for a crisp and tasty spinach-like leaf vegetable: the central midribs are delicious sliced into stir-fries.

  • Growing Instructions: Sow into pots or seed trays in early spring. Once outside conditions warm up harden off carefully and then transplant to their final growing space allowing 15cm between plants. Later in the season sow direct into shallow drills and thin seedlings to final spacings: keep the thinnings and use as baby leaves in salads. Pak choi has shallow roots so makes an excellent and decorative choice for container growing. Allow four plants to a 35cm pot or grow in rows in troughs.

  • Sow: March-September

  • Harvest: April-October

  • Approximate quantity: 125 seeds.

When do I plant potatoes and other veg? When is the best time to plants potatoes? Also can you advise me what veg I could grow now until March with poly tunnels?

Bets Ingram

You can start chitting your early and maincrop seed potatoes in February, but the best time to plant is in early to mid spring. As for growing vegetables in your polytunnels, you have lots of options. Spinach, kale, and some varieties of lettuce will live through the winter in a polytunnel. Certain kinds of onion work well from an autumn sowing, and you'll get a much earlier crop than if you'd waited until spring. Other possibilities are cabbage, Pak Choy, Chinese cabbage, and most root crops. Leeks, beets, carrots, turnips, parsnips and radishes, can be sown for winter harvest


Buying vegetable plants

If you just want to grow a few vegetables or have suffered losses with early sowings, buying plants is a great way to play catch-up. Buying plants also allows you to grow vegetables if you do not have the facilities to raise them from seed yourself or whe

Cloching for an early crop

Warming up your soil by cloching will help germination greatly, particularly when it comes to carrots, parsnips, parsley, spinach and beetroot. These seeds all need warm air temperatures of approximately 10C/50F before they even think of starting.
