Tillers are usually extra side shoots... sweetcorn does it a lot, broad beans less so but still quite common.

Thanks for the tip! And no don't remove the tillers, or you'll be removing a lot of your potential crop too!

Tillers is a new phrase for me.

Iím intrigued by Galinaís Greek White squash.

​​​​​​​I sowed three seeds and had 100% germination. 
What intrigues me is that one plant has romped away and become quite large, and the other two remained much smaller. It seems a remarkable amount of variation.

I wondered whether Galina previously or anyone this season has experienced such a degree of variability. I suppose it could just be a cultural accident but as far as I know Iíve kept them in roughly the same conditions.

Let's hope there has not been a hand pollination mistake and one seed is an unintended F1
hybrid, displaying hybrid vigor.  I seriously hope not and have been careful with isolating and hand pollinating and then reclosing the female, but hybrid vigor could be a possible explanation.

The resulting fruit will soon tell you.   :BangHead:
