As it gets more mature even if you prune it after flowering, it will be over 6 feet tall.

Runners on new strawberry plants

Good answer from No expert, sounds like a Strawberry expert! Don't let them grow runners until they are nearly ready to replace, then you can pot up the rooted runners. But when young they need to put their energy into growing good roots and making strawberries.

You see it all the time here in France. Lovely flowering shrubs clipped out of recognition around supermarket car parks.

Do you have a photo? This is a site with masses of photos that you can enlarge by clicking on them. It will take a bit of time, but you can compare the flowers with yours and look up the results on Google.

MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 28/09/2013 at 10:27

Morning all. Raining, but needed it as it's been a warm dry week. Runner beans have at last decided to do something and are producing like mad.

Hope you sleep well enough to enjoy Malvern, Matty. Enjoy your visiting, Dove.

My garden is looking pretty at the moment after a dull period, Michaelmas daisies, sedum, rudbeckia, autumn anemones etc, even roses. Photo on Garden Gallery.

Dahlias - do they all have tubers?

Dahlias grown from seed or cuttings do eventually grow tubers.

My garden has a new flush of colour with the autumn flowers, such as Michaelmas daisies and sedums.

Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 27/09/2013 at 18:12

I just posted on Morning Forkers as I had an email notification. As site has been playing up I didn't feel like searching for Evening Forkers. But site seemed to be working better. However when I came here I still had to refresh.

Bought lots of tulips in garden centre this morning, stacked logs this afternoon.
