I moved allotment in September and put in healthy runners from my previous site – they are at the moment drowning and have been for a few days on and off. As they are dormant if go and dig them up will that rescue them or cause other problems? My onions have been washed out of soil, new raspberry canes are are getting boggy too.
They can certainly recover if the rain relents a little but strawbeeries do like air around their roots and are best planted a little above ground, the top of their crowns visible. I would leave them where they are, and January’s weather forecast looks more optimistic, for southern and central UK at least.
Lots of rain for sure and this flat ground has puddles or ponds in places after a wet period but does then drain within a day, and most of the half acre looks good for growing. This weather is certainly an opportunity to see the wet spots.
