Okra also known as lady’s fingers and bhindi is best grown under glass; it is only successful outdoors in temperate climates in a sheltered position, during hot summers. It enjoys the same growing conditions as cucumber and melons. The edible calcium-rich pods are used in soups, stews and curries – avoid over-cooking or they become slimy.
My garden, or how it was in 2005 anyway. Everything nice and clean and freshly planted. Doesn’t look much like that now!
