Gariguettes Strawberry

You can get plants from Fothergills at this time of the year, but I'm not sure that I'll bother having read the advice above. Do Royal Sovereign have a longer season?

Some friends who don't have a garden, but are gourmets advised me to grow Gariguettes Strawberrys. Has anyone tried growing them? They are much loved by chefs

RonS, I googled it and found a site for collecting seeds from peace lilies. I'm not techy enough to cut and paste or whatever the url(?) here.

They said to wait until seed pod is brown or black, carefully cut it off and harvest the seeds. I understood that they could be planted when you want, though I would wait until the days are longer. But since they are tropical I would think they come from a country where there is not much difference in day length winter/summer.

What size of container for potatoes

Posted: 03/11/2014 at 09:09

I nearly always grow in containers; just those 'potato bags' that you can buy in G/Cs. Some of them are quite small. Also grow carrots in large pots as the height lifts them up too high for carrot root fly (in theory)
