Chicory - still going strong!
Looking at the GW list of things to do, one of them was to lift chicory roots. I planted a Brussels Witloof variety as a first time experiment for me, this year. I have lush green plants standing 18" tall.
Should I trim the leaves now and store the roots for forcing or should I leave them for a bit longer? We are in Devon, near the sea, and have only had one mild frost so far. I would be grateful for any advice on chicory growing and forcing.
