Has anyone any news on Lady Christi potatoes our allotment association informs me that this year they are totally unobtainable. I have called at a local garden centre which I only use very occasionally and they gave me the same story that there is none in the country. The association have been told by their supplier that it is extremely doubtful if there will ever be any Lady Christi again. It is my family's favourite early potato and I am
a little fortunate that I have saved enough of last years crop to set just one row. I know that people say that you should not save your own seed but I have never had any trouble by just saving a few and in this instance I wish I had saved a few more.

I sowed my sweet peas on Christmas Day and now three weeks later they are four to five inches tall and I am beginning to prick out the growing tip.  The advice seems to be put plant them outside after frost.  But I would like to plant them outside sooner and reuse the roottrainers.
So if I cover them under
 bottle cloches when could they go out?  I have very free draining soil so soggy soil is not an issue.  I managed to get sweet corn through -2 last year by putting a 2 litre bottle over one litre bottle to double glaze them,
So when do you think I could plant them out?  They have already been going out during the day for wind and rain therapy. 
I should really like the root trainers at the beginning of March.
