I bought some strawberry plants from Homebase and kept them inside until the weather improved slightly (perhaps Homebase isn't the best garden centre to buy plants in the UK, I don't know).
Then, I hardened them off in a cold frame before planting in a hanging bed (made from felt).
While they were in the cold frame, they developed a strange white, humid film over the leaves, almost like a fine, wet mould.
Then, immediately after planting, they developed severe markings on the leaves. A dark red, almost purple blotching, and they don't seem to be doing very well.
Can anyone advise me on what is wrong and whether it can be fixed?
