Cloudy and wet most of the day but was a lot warmer 11C according to the temp gauge in the car. I've acquired two extra re-cylcing boxes! Checked with neighbours and they've not lost any .

advice regarding strawberries for newbie

Posted: 28/01/2013 at 20:26

Worried the pots will be stolen, try super gluing drawing pins to the underside of the rim on the pot, most effective, I've only ever lost one pot, when the thief came back for the second time they got a nasty shock and probably had sore fingers for weeks.

Verdun. I've found most flowers sown here in the NW at this time of year don't usually germinate unless sown indoors and then you need to nurture them until the last of the frost before planting out which is why I started to sow hardy stuff before the on set of Winter and planted  them out in Autumn.

In the GH, Cornflower survived the Winter of 2010 but not 2011, we've had a mild winter this time, by all means try but if you aren't successful then consider sowing in Autumn next year. Cornflower can't cope with their pots being frozen.
