Excellent, we'll have to be the Toscana experts then

Carrots in tubs

I normally sieve in about a quarter sand and make sure there are no lumpy bits in the compost (home or bought). You could add a bit of something like pelleted chicken manure for extra nutrients, I add a couple of trowel fulls to a pot about 3 foot by 3 foot. A pot that size should keep away carrot fly as I've been told they don't fly much above ground level. Hope you and the little one enjoy your growing

Loved it too, quite amazed by how much they squeezed in without it feeling forced or rushed.

Went to mine today in search of bargains, left without anything. The only good thing about this cold spring is that many places are likely to have discounts or sales on plants very soon.

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.

no history at all now

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

http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/cacti-soil/75617.html

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.
