I've noticed sparrows seem to be attacking the flowers on my runner beans.  Would it be for the nectar?

As I try to be as organic as possible in the garden (often a bit of a struggle), I always enjoy Monty. I would love to see Long Meadow.

I'm still concerned about using compost on vegetables made from green waste, but what else can we use? Any ideas?

Strawberry Plants

I'm growing my 2 plants in a fairly large pot.  How often & how soon should I start feeding?  I have a couple of small fruits formed.  Many thanks for any help.

Am I right to be concerned about using compost made by Council's from green waste.   When weed killer is used i.e. on lawns then grass is sent to green waste, does treatment destroy weed killer.  I'm thinking about bought compost used on vegetables.

Strawberry Pots-What Size Please ?

Posted: 02/05/2014 at 17:28

I'm growing 2 plants in a medium sized pot on steps outside my conservatory. I used my own homemade compost.  The fruit is now forming. Will I need to give additional feeding? Thanks for any help as I've never grown strawberries before.

Can anyone put up a picture of these violets? I can't as I don't have a camera.

Perhaps I'm being too fussy.

Yes, I've checked the back spur of the flower & it's much paler, almost white.  I didn't think it would spread all over the garden like a weed.
