Woops! my runners were hanging over the side of the pot for a few weeks and I just cut them off

I had a couple of strawberry plants that had grown many off shoots with what looked like roots and new plants a even gaps.

I cut these shoots off  and planted them but they have all wilted like they are dying even though I have kept the water moist.

Have I cut the right part off the mother plant?

I have quite a few strawberry plants and they are covered in greenfly, will they harm them? If yes what can I use to remove them but leave the strawberries good to eat?

Look what I did to my rhodos

Neglected Rose

Thanks for the advice people

One thing I forgot to mention is the rose now has lots of buds ready to pop, should I still cut it back or wait for flowering to finish?

Hi Everyone,

I had a lovely round rose tree but due to working away a lot in the last year it has been neglected and gone all leggy. Can I ask how I can return it to a nice ball, should I just go wild and snip away until I'm happy with the shape?

I know nothing about cutting roses back



PS The picture on my computer is the right way around but when I upload it this site rotates it



Building a veg planter

Posted: 02/04/2014 at 23:10

I'm building a veg planter in my garden and I was wondering whether you could answer two questions.

1) The planter will be built onto of some flagging which when the weather is wet will flood to about 2-3 inches. Should I gravel the base of the planter a similar height before adding soil.

2) Should I fill it with compost or top soil, the planter will be quite large and may require a lot of compost bags to fill.

I think it is a Bee as it was very fat all over and I would say a wasp is longer and thinner. The problem with where they are at the moment is the box is 2 inches from my head when I walk in the shed. The reason I knew it was there was because I could hear this strange hissing noise when I was opening and shutting the door, after two days it was freaking me out a little so I narrowed it to the bird box and decided to look in the hole. To say the least having a very large Bee vibrating it's wings right in my face made me jump haha.

Thanks, I might put them in a corner and hope they do get to big of a nest!
