I'll try to get a photo of the yellow ones on here.

I have those, they are a pale blue, muscari Comosum? I think and there are another variety that are bigger than the blue ones and are yellow which I bought a few years ago called Golden Fragrance. You can also get white muscari too, muscari Botryoides Album. I got them all from Taylors at their charity bulb sale which they have in October or November every year.

strawberries in raised beds

I have strawberries in a raised bed, about 7 inches deep and the soil is mixed with general purpose compost. This will be their 4th year and no probs so far. You could try in a hanging basket.

I buy one pack Gemma, and then they somehow make their way to the biscuit tin. My boys put the whole pack in and then they are the ones eating them

Bargain Buy of 2015

What has been your best buy? Mine was a flaming katy for £1.00 and a slipper orchid £9.99. Never seen one 'in the flesh' before so hope I can keep it going.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
