Framberry!

Those nice people at Spalding Plants and Bulbs are keen for horticultural bloggers like me to join their club and trial new products. They have kindly sent me a free gift of 100 Spring bulbs for joining and have asked me to review one of their newish plants next year. I have chosen to trial the ‘Framberry’ which is a strawberry that tastes like a raspberry!

How anybody managed to hybridise those two is anyone’s guess but that is not as weird as the Pineberry, a Strawberry that tastes like a Pineapple!!!!!

So, yesterday my two rooted runners arrived along with the bulbs and although it is -3° outside, they will be potted on and kept in the greenhouse until April when I am expecting great things!
