Have been covering up for weeks now as we get a slight frost most nights till early May.
If they do get a touch of frost keep direct sun off them as this burns the leaves.
Just for you Dippa Dazza
Right hand left foot here too.
Sowed onion sets and covered my earlies to protect from frost.
Can't see why not.
Raspberries do this all the time. They need a barrier to keep them from spreading all over the garden. The roots are shallow and from these the new sprouts emerge.
Judith you can keep them in a shed in a container till Autumn and plant them out again or pot them up with new compost. They keep well. Weren't they dry when you bought them?
Dove you need to eat more of the stuff.
Tilled for cabbage and spuds today.
Sprayed weeds in gravel yard with round up.
Ate some rhubarb for good measure.
October is the longest month in the year, by one hour. Clocks go forward in March and we get an extra hour in the garden next week.
Sowed my First Early Sharpes Express under a cloche on March 7th. 3 of them are up. Frost last night, covered with a sheet of fleece and all looks well and good this evening. The biggest problem with frost is that the early morning sun burns the leaves. If in doubt leave covered for a few hours so they thaw before exposing to the sunlight.
