I want to plant alpine strawberries in a container. If I want them to remain in the container for a few seasons what is the best compost to use and will they need feeding?

Thanks for the advice. I think i will still just use it round plants.

How do folk use worm compost apart from putting it rounds plants? Can it be added to multipurpose compost?

I just wondered if I could reuse it in containers, perhaps put it in the bottom half and add fresh compost on top.

Is it possible to use old potting compost for growing carrots and salad crops? Would it be o.k. to add fish blood and bone to it as a fertilizer?

Thanks for the advise. I think that oxalis is also difficult to get rid of!!!

Thank you Busy-Lizzie. What you are saying is exactly what I have read. I'm just afraid of digging incase I miss bulblets and it spreads even more. I wonder if covering it with weed prevention matting might help.

I know it is attractive but I need to get rid of it!

Thank you for those responses. I gather that part of the problem is getting all the bulbs out as they tend to roll around in the soil.

I wish to replant part of my garden but have found Arum Italicum growing amongst plants. I believe it is very difficult to get rid of. Can anyone please advise me how to eradicate it and stop it spreading or how to deal with it?
