Re: Amaranth variety suitable for cultivation in North of England
- Hi Maarten,
How about growing amaranth in an enclosed space, such as plastic or
remay wrapped squares of 5' or so? Or, what about next to a heat sink -
-a brick/stone wall? Do they need more heat or light or both than
other plants to take off? Earlier planting?
