This year we rearranged the gutters in the greenhouse.
Adding 2 more to the back of the greenhouse, giving us another 14 ft. and 18 plants…they are really small , bare root plants and planted much closer
It may be hard to see them, they are on the right. I was very happy to find the Tristar variety this year. Another ever-bearing, they are supposed to be superior in producing berries and disease resistance. I’ve never purchased bare root plants before, so when I was told each pot had 10 plants, I was reluctant to believe it, hmmm.. and came home with an extra 20 plants…ha! Good thing they were really well priced 🙂
Last years plants were all over wintered in the raised bed , these are the ones we kept! All Seascape, 20 of them are now in the gutters that are on the east wall.
The rest of the Tristar have a home in the raised bed next to the garage on a hot south facing wall along with the new lemon & lime trees! Tomatoes & cucumbers will also be planted here! Cant wait, this warm weather is tempting me to get them in the ground now 😉
An update from what we did last year; We found that the gutters with the stones added for drainage didn’t work well, especially for replanting, plus the west facing wall was too hot and the gutters dried out too fast. Perhaps the other varieties are still worth while trying but for now we will just stick with the most hardy (Seascape & Tristar)
