My giants have taken a page out of my report on the Giant’s Causeway and haven’t exactly lived up to my expectations this year, and my onions (which I will photograph and measure soon) won’t win any prizes either.
My ‘Champion Giant’ cabbages, though, which I grew from Robinson’s Mammoth seeds*, have really done rather well. With a canna in the middle for scale, I planted 16 flowers, four in each of the four 2 m square beds. In essence, each plant had a square metre to cover. Now that some plants have grown but not yet produced heads, I will attribute this to a combination of dry weather and possibly clubroot in the soil (I do have it in some spots, and I will know when it does).
I have some ‘Kilaton’ cabbages, which are said to be clubroot resistant, planted in one area. Additionally, I have the red summer ‘Kalibos’ planted here, and strangely enough, despite some of the plants not developing well and maybe having clubroot, they are currently outperforming the ‘Killaton’.
