I'd have a walk on some rough ground, especially near water, you can usually find it growing out of control. Most gardeners regard it as a weed as it seeds itself quite madly. You may find them in a wildflower mix, so I'd google a supplier.

Pallet strawberries!

Nice display of vertical gardening. What did you use behind the pallet to contain the strawbs?

Male urine is a deterrent, get your OH to pee in a bucket and pour some around the raised beds.

Too much bone meal?

It may well have objected to being moved. I'd cut out the poor growth and make room for the new growth which is showing. It''ll be well fed for sure, but keep it well watered and it should be ok. You may get no or few flowers for a while but unless you dig it all up again replace some of the soil, you may just have to put up with it.

You won't get either bay or buxus cheap anywhere as both grow relatively slowly and the larger specimens take up a lot of nursery time and space, hence the cost. If you can give us an idea of the height you need, aspect and soil conditions then suggestions will come flooding in. A word of warning, instant gardening isn't cheap.

You could be on to a loser there, usually too many to do manually. Sometimes we have to stoop to chemicals, no matter how hard we try.
