Does anyone have FFO dates (for any year) for either 'Barbara Mitchell' or 'Strawberry Candy' that they would be willing to share, along with the location of their garden?

Maurice, I live in southern Indiana near Evansville (zone 6b). I have Strawberry Candy and here are the FFO's for it that I have. 2012 was an unusual year in that everything bloomed a couple weeks early that year.

New to the garden in 2001, I sold it out of the garden in 2010.

I did not know that FFO was a data that others recorded.

It is for fun or do you use the data for other reasons?

Only so I can use the data on this site for others who want to know... like you!! Smiling

If it weren't for sharing information, I don't think my flower gardens would be as much fun. I enjoy having another reason to go out into my flower beds and wander around. My camera is always in my hand when I get home from work (and after I change into my tennis shoes Hilarious! ) and that is how I know my FFO's. Some are not pretty but I take the picture anyway.

Thank you pinkpurple. for the FFO dates. I use the location to lookup the maximum and minimum temperatures each day during those years so that I can calculate the growing degree days the plants experience. Could you please let me know the name of a nearby town or city.
