    Thanks. I did see that, but they won't have them until the autumn. I was hoping still to catch this season, but I think that's a forlorn hope.

    Try contacting them - they may be able to oblige as they despatch until the end of March "in an average season".

    I bought over £100 worth of plants from them. The strawberry runners were dead and rotten the rest was delivered the next day a mixture of live and dead plants. I contacted them on the day and with photographs of the clearly dead plants. They tried to argue that they were fine and they'd grow. I sent them back by special delivery and they then claimed I had killed them and they were blameless. They are aggressive, rude and don't take any responsibility for their mistakes.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I called them, but no luck.

    I guess I'll have to try again next year, or get a different (pot-grown) variety now.

    Do you grow in the garden or allotment? If an allotment, maybe another plot holder has one but would be the wrong time to take cuttings.
