cold snap and potatoes

Posted: 25/04/2015 at 22:47

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.

Autumn flowering raspberries sprouting far from canes

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?

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.

spuds in ?

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.
