This year has not been a runaway success, but it has been a very good year for the Chilean Guava. I don't know what volume of fruit there was, as there was not exactly a harvest more of a persistent grazing and in the end the dog discovered the plant as a source of nibbles.
Yacon and Oca cropped, but not heavily. possibly due to the wind chill.
Pepper tree; purchased ~1ft tall at end of 2012. Tripled in height in 2013 in a courtyard in Southampton. No much growth in 2014 on a Hillside in Somerset. No fruit as yet.
Blue Honesuckle; 5 berries. Quite tasty. Plant constantly looks like it is about to die.
Wasabi; challenging to keep alive. I have had trouble with slugs before, but nothing compares to they way they attack wasabi. various other critters go for it too.
Cape Gooseberry; did quite well in the conservatory. Probably 1 litre of fruit.
|A bigger Soya bean and two bigger cape gooseberrys|
Tomatillo: no success.
Soya beans; grew up well. produced just enough beans for small handful of edumame then all died. These were grown from seeds that were supposed to be suited to the UK, but I have read that soya is not able to nitrogen fix in UK soil unless the correct bacteria is added. Possibly the source of the problem.
