Thank you I shall sort this out this weekend and take a look

Repotting my trees.

Posted: 12/02/2015 at 19:22

Hi all,

I think i may need to repot these plants this year, its going to be there 4th year in containers and im expecting they maybe a bit root bound? 

Is this a good idea or is there any specific signs which indicate they need repotting?

Last year my rose was pretty much a disaster as it got a lot of black spot. - so im guessing this may be why?

Thoughts would be appreciated

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

Hi, 

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? 

thanks

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?

thanks

What tree is this?

I thought it was perhaps a type of salix tree?
