From experience, which may be different from other people, avoid T&M, Hayloft and Parkers.

When is the best time to sow strawberries in the UK?

Well, white strawberries are not unusual.

Remember that strawberry seeds should be sown on the surface of the soil.

Remember how we all jeered at the use of the word ' refurbish' when it was used by the American Ambassador about his London home. Now everybody uses the word!

Words go in and out of use.

Take a couple of photos back to where you bought it from and ask what they are going to do about it. It looks in its death throes, if not dead already.

composting hay

archiepem, I have read your post again and I fail to understand why you are throwing away valuable chicken bedding. It has to be composted, but it is a wonderful compost accelerator. Put it all in your compost with grateful thanks to your cooks for giving you such useful stuff.

Remember Elsanta is the strawberry mostly found in supermarkets and nobody rates the flavour very highly. They mostly stock it because it travels well, but that should not be a consideration with the variety you grow in your garden.

I think strawberry seed needs light to germinate; so sow them on the surface. You will only get small alpine-type strawberries from seed.
