    Just an update on my bare rooters which I potted up into 4 inch pots.

    They are doing well and leafing up on the bedroom windowsill. Only one of the 15 plants appears to have perished.


    Just waiting for the white stuff to clear off so I can get them down the allotment and put them into a cold frame to harden off a bit before planting out.

    Decided just to put the potted plants outdoors next to the patio doors. That way I can keep an eye on the watering and make sure they don't dry out. Likewise with the patio pear,plum and cherry I have.

    Mine have looked like this ever since they've been in the pots. The window is sunny enough. Should I just dispose of the non green ones or could they be saved?Bare root strawberries-img_20190226_215324__02.jpgBare root strawberries-img_20190226_215318__01__01__01.jpg

    The plants with no green leaves on them look to me to be dead - I'd definitely get them away from the others. Having moved them, I'd have a dig around among the roots to try to see why they died.

    Only one of the fifteen I bought appears to have died which is deemed an acceptable loss by me.

    I have still stuck the 'dead' one in he soil in the hope it may recover. If I had more than 10% which died, I think I would be approaching the seller in hope of some sort of recompense?
