Money Maker : cordon

Goldstar : can't find anything since seed is "no longer commercially available" according to some websites

Gardener's Delight : bush, I thought but cordon according to http://seeds.thompson-morgan.com/us/en/product/277/1

I thought my gardeners Delight were supposed to be cordon, but when they started to grow, they never got very tall, then I realised that I'd mistaken the growing tip for a side shoot and so had OH, so between us we managed to nip out the growing tip on every GD plant!!!!   So ours never got higher than 3 ft, but I've just looked in my Edwin Tucker catalogue and it doesn't say.

But I've just done a search and someone on allotments4all in 2004 reckons his Gardeners dElight reched 5ft!!!  so I guess they are cordon!!!

Cheers, chaps & chapesses - that would explain the air of hushed reverence that accompanied the Goldstar!  They're all well into their show veg up here, some of the old boys save their seeds for generations  :shock:

Do I start taking out side shoots as soon as they appear?  The Goldstar have flowers already, and are 18" tall.
