Ground Nuts
« on: November 21, 2020, 11:28 »
Morning
Managed to get popcorn ordered this morning thanks Basketcase\AnnieB. See other post.
So, just wondering if anyone has more recent experience or advice on growing these?  If read some of the previous posts - no more photos please, shock horror, but its been a few years from what I could tell so new varieties and tips could be available. Want to grow on lottie, not completely dug over yet but soil not very sandy but some areas have been sieved and look to have good drainage. 
Also have large metal shelving unit which im going to use as raised bed so could alter soil and wondered if the metal would heat up the soil and help? No greenhouse or poly....
Thanks

Hi Jezza, Ground nuts. TBH I tend to google and you tube but always good to have comment from home or allotment gardeners, I did try growing seeds in the greenhouse last year but they didn't germinate.
