Frosty plum and small leeks
The buds on one of my plums are dry, and crumbly. Is this frost damage? The other nearby is fine. I think the damaged one is slightly later flowering, and we had a late frost in early May. Presumably it will retard growth this year, or will it make more buds, as per a chilli?
Also, my leeks are tiny, sown in beds in early April, took ages to sprout, and most are only 1mm wide. Ones sown in modules in a coldframe are up to 5mm wide. Is slow growth normal? Next year I might sow all in modules and plant out.
Having sown Pak Choi, beetroot and sweetcorn in modules, it seems to be the way to go for faster growth. I wonder if root restriction is part of the secret, not just warmth? Restricting chillis does allow more top growth.
