    Hi bramble, I've grown rhubarb from seed and moved house with the plant and it was no problem I haven't done strawberry's though so I will be interested to see what others have to say

    I have Bramble, they were a free packet with a mag about 2 or 3 years ago, nurtured them to fruiting size and the gourgeous red fruits were orrible

    A lot of the seed ones are Alpine strawbs and only give you small fruits late in autumn and are nice. Personally I wouldn't bother with this again and just buy some plants of some well known varieties.

    Hi Nick,
    Thanks for replying. I bought this pack of seed in Spain in the autumn.Not much directions as most of its in spanish. The picture on the packet looks delicious, big juicy strawberries BUT as we all know, never judge the book by the cover. Anyway they're already sown, so I will w3ait and see what results i get.
    regards, Bramble.

    Hi Poultrychat,
    Thanks for that info. I was told rhuberb is very hard to germinate so i sowed 20 seed just to be on the sure.l Am now hoping they all dont germinate as i don,t have room for them all and can,t imagine what i can do with all that lot (except make rhuberb wine)

    Hi Bramble
    Why stick to wine - there's Andrewo's recipe for rhubarb schnapps - join the rest of us in making this - I think everyone who has read his recipe has decided that it is truly worthwhile.
