Coping with Club Root

Club RootClub root is a disease that affects the Brassica family. The family includes cabbages, cauliflowers, Brussel sprouts, swedes and the humble radish which are all commonly grown crops on allotments.

Two interesting articles elsewhere on the web, give information and advice on how to grow brassicas if you find that your soil is affected by this soil borne organism.

An article from the BBC website is very informative. And from a Worcester Allotment Holder comes an excellent picture of an affected root along with detailed information. Here are mentioned old chemicals which used to be used and which have – as the article says – been banned for home gardeners.
