Happy Easter, to those that celebrate it! I wanted to say something about sowing and sharing seeds, and why this is so important in protecting the biodiversity…
It may need staking. Harvesting may start in Late summer. Harvesting may end in Early autumn. Fairly difficult to grow.
Propagate from seed sown in a low mound and thinned to 1 or 2 vigorous vines. Water the roots only.
Pests, diseases or disorders
Slugs/snails, mildew or heavy pruning. Vulnerable to downy mildew.
