Growing Pak Choy, also Pak choi

I grow Bok/Pak Choy having come home from Thailand and discovered since my time out of the country it is now grown here. It is easy to grow and readily available as a green vegetable. I endeavour to leave one or two plants to go to seed: 1. for the flowers as they really attract bees to the garden. 2. My next seasons seeds. Some of the seeds will fall to the garden, germinate and grow. I just transplant them to wherever I want them.I like steamed bok choy with a little soya sauce over it once it is cooked. It is great to add to a stir-fry or young leaves added to a fresh salad.
