Sowed my Queens on 3rd April, they are flowering but very small yet. I'd wait till early july for spuds sown on April 1st.

strawberry questions!

We don't get much sun down here in Tipperary and I leave the strawberries to themselves but a little trimming won't do any harm. What variety? And if you are from Wexford you should have lots of sun.

Back to the real issue on this thread. Flowers or the lack of them don't seem to make much of a difference.

 Set to chitt on 10/2/14.

Sowed on 12/3/14.

Picked at 10am to-day and consumed by 1.30pm.

No flowers. Loads of taste.

Less of the bickering please and more co-operation.

Happy gardening.

how to grow swede

Posted: 26/05/2014 at 22:33

I have never sown Swedes in pots. Sow them directlyand thinly, thin out to between 5 and 9 inches apart depending on size required. One of the easiest veg plants to grow and no rush the can be sown in June.

It amazes me how small and miserable the crowns for sale in gardencenters are.

 That's the size they should be, with enough stored energy to produce a good crop of healthy leaves in year one and a good crop for picking in year two.

April seems a bit late to sow rhubarb. I picked some in early April.
