I believe that strawberry seeds and plants need a period of cold during the winter.  My question is regarding strawberry seeds (specifically SC's strawberry seed swap seeds). When putting the seeds into the cold do they need to be in/on the soil, i.e. sowed or do they have to be dry?

Lightbulb Seven Jobs for the week
Posted by: Veggie - 13-01-2022, 12:58 AM - Replies (25)

The idea is that you list 7 jobs that you want to do during the week and then report back on how you did. 
Complete all the jobs and you get a Gold Star;  Fail and it'll be something unpleasant. Wink

We'll start at the weekend - publish your List on Sunday, start on Monday and complete it by the following Sunday - something like that anyway!!

This has followed two weeks of dry weather and is forcast to be followed by another fortnight of calm weather. 
Is this the new normal?

Sorry, me again Big Grin I'm reading up on mint for cut flowers.

Now I've always got peppermint on the go, I've had the furry leaf one? But that died as the pot got neglected...had a few over the years and it's only peppermint that had survived. 
But I would like to try a couple for cut flowers, maybe just start a new one in a pot on my new patio....
Now chocolate mint didn't live for very long, I've never heard of buddlea mint? Any mints you think will grow a reasonable stem?
