Now into a fourth year 2011-03-11

These are surprisingly simple to grow, I usually sow the seed in modules much easier to plant a well spaced row.They grow very well in the more shaded part of the garden. Keep well watered and a harvest in the first year. Usually they are left until the following year and let the tops grow to flower stage.I then pick the plump flower buds and saute in butter a very tasty treat followed by the steamed roots.
