This is my 2nd year growing Gardeners Delight for free, i used the seeds GW gave away last year in the magazine and saved seeds from them to grow this year, with 100% germination success and lost a few at the beginning, i have lots of plants with trusses and trusses growing in both greenhouses, one at home and the other at the allotment, i had so many plants i gave some away and have about 5 in the back garden which haven't ripened yet as there been very little sun ans warmth but there is no sign of blight and plenty of young fruit. I have eaten about a dozen so far which were delicious and sweet but have to save what is ripe at the moment for tomorrows local allotment society show where i won 2nd prize last year with my garderners delight. I grow these because they are hassle free and give abundant crops, working full time and having a garden and an allotment to tend on my own, I dont have much time for things that need a lot of care and molly coddling to grow. when i retire i will have a go at some other varieties as mentioned in this thread but the Gov have added another 6 years to my working life so it wont be until May 2020.
