Growing Swede

Zone No zone. South west England UK. | radio john added on November 1, 2013 | Answered

Does the practice of removing older leaves on growing swede encourage the plant to grow larger? This is something that I believe was recommended by a professional garden presenter on BBC Television about 3 years ago and I would like your comments please.

    There are related articles listed at the end of the above.

    Personally, I've never heard about removing the older leaves to promote growth. You could experiment with a few plants.
