    Jerusalem Artichokes - Anyone else growing them this year ?

    I used to grow them and they made a very good soup. We don't grow any root veg nowadays :noidea:As they discolour so easily it's best to dip them in acidulated water when preparing them.

    Autumn fruiting raspberries fruit on the new growth. Prune after they have fruited - mine are now due for pruning. Leave the new shoots - you will get your fruit on these canes next year.
