    Default 2018 Strawberries.

    Looks like we will get some early GH strawberries again this year despite the bad start to the season.

    I wish mine started producing strawberries. No flowers on mine yet.

    Congrats Potty, those first ones always taste the best.

    Yes have flowers here and its great to see. Slight issue is not all are an early variety, will sort that this year from runners. Have removed flowers from the everbearers so hopefully more late season fruit off them

    My Mara Des Bois are flowering, I go round with a small paintbrush pollinating them whilst buzzing like a Bee, my Grandsons asked why, I said the plants might be listening, probably confirmed to them that their Grandad is slightly nuts(I said slightly).

    You say "slightly" - I'd like to get a second opinion from your grandsons :-)

    I've actually got a few of the little baby fruits forming on some of my outdoor ones... mind you, there were ones I bought a few weeks ago, so probably got going under cover somewhere!
