Hi ltalophile. thanks for replying, i have been trying to get back to you but my computer working is not very good. the temp in my greenhouse at the mowment is 20c , i see to day my sweet million plant as some yellow flowers on it, and the gardeners delight and the shirley are showing signs of flowers coming but the money maker is the one that looks a little yellow and one of the branches came off today. I got them about 4 weeks ago and they are about 18ins tall now, the money maker is only 14 ins tall.

I have just decided to try gardening, i have dug up some lawn roughly 12ft by 15ft.

I have runner beans,onions,carrots potatoes and strawberrys. My strawberrys seem to be doing well,iput them in a grow bag last year,mead holes in the bottom so the roots can grow through! but i see i have a lot of ants all around them, will that be a problem? will the ants eat my strawberrys before I do? can any one help
