Having had a look around I think it might be a variety called 'Drama Queen,' although I can't say for sure as not all the images match the OP's photo.

It's probably something Fizz, although I can't find its exact botanical name.

It sounds like they're not getting enough light or warmth, but we really need a little more information. When are they planted out? What's the usual water/feed situation? Where are they planted and in what?

I imagine you could mix the seeds with something like vermiculite (if you have any), although I haven't done it myself so you might want to wait for more replies.

Bone meal or Fish bone and blood??

What an excellent thread. I have used pelleted chicken manure for the last few years to give the soil a boost before planting. I was going to use Growmore when planting various fruit bushes out this spring but have changed my mind, I'll give fish bone and blood a go instead. We're very lucky to have such knowledgable people here, thanks for everyone's input.

Green Manure

I used buck wheat in July last year after doing the basic soil conditioning, it's a new plot so needed a lot of digging over and hard work. It was dug back in to the soil towards the end of last year, this year is our first growing season so we've yet to find out how well it's done. We chose to use it as we didn't want the beds sitting empty whilst we worked on other things and it can't have done any harm. Sorry I can't be more use than that.

I'm confused by your question, you say the fruiting canes have been cut back, then ask if the fruiting canes should be cut back?

Good carrot for containers

My guess would be that was down to the terrible weather last year rather than the carrot variety.

Good carrot for containers

I've grown loads of different types of carrots in containers, it's a better way of growing them because it eradicates the chance of carrot fly. Just make sure you have a light sandy soil and pick any that take your fancy and you'll be fine.

Ah I see, they should be clear on delivery date and stick to it then.
