Hi all,

as i am container gardening for my fruit and veg will this have an a more increased risk on certain pests attacking crops. Should i invest in some fine insect mesh to cover crops? 

This is my first time, so im not too sure how likely it will be to have crops attacked my pests. My only experience is with aphids!

Does it depend on location? and how open you are? for example and large fields and gardens more likely to have higher pest problems?


Strawberry & raspberry plants

i have x2 38cm pots which are 10"deep. I would like to grow some strawberries and raspberries this year.

Can i add x2 plants to each of these pots?

Also if i get a bare rooted plants now, will it have some fruit by the summer?

I will not do courgettes for now, i went out and purchased some new pots which now are much deeper. 

Although the ones i bought for the carrots ended up being only 10" deep so i miss judged them a little bit. Im tempted to go get two new ones for the carrots so they are definitely 12" deep at least!

Im still yet to buy some strawberry and raspberry plants. The two pots i have in mind for them are 38cm - 10" deep. Will these be big enough for 1 or 2 plants per a pot?

Would 30cm pots be ok for the herbs then?

I have seen these on amazon, i have a nice sunny wall i can hang them onto.

Or these 24cm ones here which don't need screwing and just tie to drain pipe.

I may get some dwarf beans then, and see if these grow better.

Im not too sure about courgettes, my husband loves them though. What size container do they need for a plant?

Ok, so i have started planning what i'm going to do:

Im going to put 3 runner beans into the one grow bag (16.5" x 14")

one tomato plant per a grow bag (16.5" x 14") im growing the 'money maker' i will have two in total.

My carrots are currently growing in a trough which measures 16" long but only 6" deep - im guessing these are tiny carrots or that they need to be moved into a deeper container? Advice on this please

I have 10 pepper seedlings growing in another trough which also measures 16" long but only 6" deep, i have read a 30 cm pot is adequate for one plant, so will one plant be ok to stay in this trough? and to plant a second one in another pot. I am only planning on keeping around 2 of each plant. Advice on this please

As for growing my herbs, i am going to be growing Basil, coriander, chives and parsley. I was wondering if i can grow them individually in small 20cm pots or is this too small?

What tree is this?

I thought it was perhaps a type of salix tree?
