I thought you were very early until I read your location.

Lucky you. Was it nice and sweet?

They have done very well (to my inexpert eye  ;) ) and taste great.
We had a month of really hot weather, and thats whats made the difference I think, but have been watering every 3 days.
Cant take any credit for them though: it was Madame who sowed them: I told her not to bother because they never come to anthing  :blush: :blush: :blush:
Will definitely do them again next year, especially cos we dont often get them in the shops round here.

I grew a small block in the greenhouse.  They were very good, recommended! I planted Swift which are quite short, so they only got to about 5' - unlike the old fashioned varieties that would have lifted the roof!
