I think I was probably right. It's just while they're getting established we need to be careful about watering, they don't like standing in cold wet soil.
Regarding your soil pH, there are steps you can take, but it isn't critical and maybe the soil test should be done first.
Thanks for the info about Wisley trial fields....I haven't visited them.
Btw, I shall be at Wem (Shropshire) on the 19th July for their annual SP show, if anyone would like to say hello.
