I've got a two-crop rotationI've got a two-crop rotation of 250 Stuttgarters in my greenhouse (planted six weeks apart, at the beginning of March and the middle of April), trimming greentops as I use them (they do taste amazing) and letting them grow in a mixed compost of shredded bamboo, potash from my incinerator, commercial potting compost and commercial all-purpose compost. They're growing at a stupendous rate, faster than I can eat them! I think I probably got lucky in my choice of growing variety, as I'm at fairly high latitude (53N) yet the average early planting shoot height is more than 18 inches! Oh, and I'm using no dressing fertiliser, just feeding with pure rainwater!
