Well, I'll be blowed......an ebay ad for the same blue strawberry has now appeared at the top of this forum page.  

Beware the dreaded blue strawberry!

I do use an ad blocker, btw.

I don't believe that. 

I have photo-manipulation programmes on my computer. I could breed something like that

 

Me too.....not sure if I'd want to though.

I should be able to manage that David, I'm very familiar with the wine glass shape 

Yes, we know about your addiction, OL   .......perhaps the words 'goblet shape' would have been a better choice of phrase.

Never heard that one, OL and to be honest can't imagine what it's based on.

It is advisable to note the potential spread of each rose before you order, so you can avoid overcrowding. Overcrowding prevents free circulation of air between plants and thus causes diseases. Also to this end, when pruning keep the centre of the bush open, ie prune to a kind of wine glass shape.

Also, individual beds of one variety look much better than mixed beds.

OL, at those 'bargain' prices you should be looking elsewhere.

Can't help there, OL....never bought a garden mag since 1954.

Anyway, the 'smiley' ones are good.
