elsanta is a good variety. can be planted outside now or planted inside or in pots. space them 30 cm X 30 Cm outside or one plant in a 24cm pot and grow outside for a month and then bring inside. You should have your first crop in may if planted inside or in June if planted outside.
Rhubarb, the best early varieties are the Timperley varieties. Plant now into deep well manured rich free draining ground spacing the crowns 60cm apart each way. Clear the ground of any perennial weeds before planting.

Strawberries respond to a rise in temperature after a period of rest and cool weather. if they are in the whole time they will grow on and may produce a lot of foliage and a small amount of fruit. The blossom is already formed in the bud and normally develops as the days are lengthening.
