You can try this on other veg. Leek roots are supposed to grow – have got some in a pot in the greenhouse – will check on them soon.

Potatoes are well known for growing even from little peelings – my compost bin is often full of them!

Anything with a root base is probably worth a grow! Lettuces, lemongrass, spring onions, bulb Fennel, – just have a look at the veg you’re preparing and give it a try!
