Perki , very impressive , have you put drainage holes in it ? 

I have some very large containers and I always put some 10ml gravel in bottom to help drainage 

Personally I would put a mixture of soil and cheap multi purpose compost in it and mix it up 

Looking forward to seeing your strawberry planters

Bob , a few on the site have rotators , personally don't use them as I have some horse tail and it would make a lot worse

Esther the best advice I can give is do a section at a time , so many on our site try and do it all in one go and give up

Weather should be OK tomorrow so spending whole day at plot

Gardengirl must look into ginger
