Hello , I believe they like to be pot bound however I have just repotted one as there where loads of roots coming out of the bottom , in fact had to cut pot and some root to get it out

you do need special compost thou 

best of luck

On allottment Sunday and Monday lots done , picked lots of strawberries and rasberries and O/H made jam , rasberry perfect , strawberry a bit runny

Also bid some raspberry Vodka and black currant juice both firsts

bought some blue water piping from builder merchant to make arches for cabbages 

planted a courgette that produce round rather than the normal shap O/H going to stuff it for dinner tonight 

I agree everything growing well , sun and rain does make a difference , shame the weeds are growing !

Anyone done any gardening today?
