Strawberry novice

I think that if you plant strawberries early so that they get settled in before flowering then there is no need to pinch them out. If you plant late and the flowers are just about to swell than pinch them out to help them concentrate on root growth.

MONTY DON...disparu encore une fois?

Just seen this. Oh dear, we weren't very welcoming to a new poster who only said he/she was sad that Monty wasn't twittering. Sounds as though they miss Monty.

Been on the phone for 2 hours with daughter this morning. Day seems to be disappearing before I've done anything apart from watering seedlings and putting washing in machine.

What would survive in my mini greenhouse at the moment

Agreed, they are all hardy plants, so long as they have all taken they will be fine in a cold frame or mini greenhouse. If they aren't babies they would be fine outside.

Bindweed :(

Bindweed does die back in winter leaving thin string all over what it climbed up.

Treat it in growing season with Glyphosate, not easy when it's all over everything! Then when it's dead, which may take a few goes, pull off the dead strings.

I made a hedgehog cake years ago for one of my children's birthday, easy and looked good. You make the cake in 2 bowls then put it together, fattest ends in the middle. But mine was covered in chocolate buttons, that's what was available at the time.
