Toscana Strawberries

Ah yes, I should have read your info first

I've read up a little on them, there's not much around as they're a fairly new variety, each plant should produce a kilo of fruit each year. They also won an award in 2011 although I'm not sure if that's for their attractiveness or being a good strawb.

I'm quite excited about them really, I would have dug over the patch at my allotment ready for them today had it not been for the snow.

They certainly look lovely don't they? I'm hoping the fruits are good too. Where did you get yours from Lizzy? Mine are from T&M.

I ordered some of these last night as I found a fairly good special offer and they're supposed to be ever bearing. Has anyone had any experience of growing them and is there anything I should know?

Mine are up but still small. I have them in pots near the house though which might keep them a little warmer. Be wary of slugs as they love them.

I saw some in B&Q for 10p for 6 a few days ago, absolutely kicking myself for not picking them up. Lovely plants.

I'll be splitting mine and potting it up to move tomorrow for the same reason, so yeah, go for it. Though of course be wary of how much you take off them this season, try to get the plants well established first.

Hi Alan, I think this is the thread you're looking for


You can use the forum search function at the top of the page to find old thread titles, not ideal I know, but it will have to do until they've ironed out all the problems.

What happens when you leave your boyfriend unattended!!

I'm being short changed here, I need one of them!

I normally have to think up ever increasingly 'exciting' jobs for my bf to do, even then I do so with the intention of creating as few problems as possible. He just says he likes digging, which is alright but I'd like him to do more building and weeding really.

The majority of garden centres around where I live are owned by major chains, Dobbies, Wyvale and Notcutts, then there's also B&Q, Homebase and a whole load of supermarket and cut price stores. I know of one independent nursery within about a 30 minute drive (which I regularly visit).

The 'support your local GC' line doesn't really work when it turns out that, in the case of Dobbies, it's owned by Tesco.

Firstly I'd contact T&M and tell them of the problem, secondly I'd fully expect replacements. It sounds like they've gone in to shock moving from ideal conditions at the nursery to your kitchen, but as they've been inside I'm not really sure. None of mine are in leaf at the moment though.

Purple sprouting broc - should I have some by now?

They take a long time to produce heads but you should get some by the end of this summer. They don't really need to be in a greenhouse so if you need the space just drag the grow bags out (make sure you harden them off first though).
