Hi everyone,

This is my first ever attempt at growing strawberries and I have a few white flowers that have opened over the past couple of days.......my neighbour has told me to cut the flowers off just under the base of the flower with scissors to get more strawberries.........eeeeek!!

I have them growing in a big whicker tub, about 8 plants in all - I dont necessarily want to cut them off - is she right in telling me to do this????

My mum said I wont get any strawberries if I do this??

All help appreciated xx

What to do!!

Hi Yvonne, I would also like to say that I don't have very much knowledge of plants and am re-designing my side garden.......the folks on here have been brilliant in reccommending and advising me so make it your one stop shop if you need anything..........we definately aren't judgemental and are interested in helping everybody. There are some very knowledgeable people on here and I am in awe of them, I wish I was as knowledgeable but I am getting there slowly but surely. I was advised to do one project at a time and that is my mantra going forward...........Rome wasn't built in a day and yes I am still making mistakes but that's part of the learning and enjoyment of gardening.........you are very lucky to have a grenhouse.I am also on the lookout for one

Good luck with the garden and it would be nice to se a few photos as you go along

Take care

Talkback: Tulips

Posted: 25/04/2012 at 15:47
Hi James, I'm so glad you posted this as the exact same thing has happened, to our potted tulips.
I never forget to water them so must be another reason for mine.............I planted 12 of the exact same variety in one pot, can't remember the name,they were a very beautiful, striking, dark purple. They have all come through now however 4 of them have turned a lovely yellowy/creme colour and these cream ones are half the size of the purple ones??????? Any ideas why this might have happened

Bramley in Leeds, West Yorkshire is dry....................waheyyyyyyy!!

We've had enough rain this last week, I'm surprised I haven't grown  webbed feet & a beak and transplanted myself into the local pond

Rained all week on and off and have had a few casualties in the garden but hey-ho, onwards and upwards.

Going into the shed today to plant some summer flowering annuals ( if I'm not too late) to replace the grape hyacinths and daffs in pots that are just about done with for this year.

What is everyone else planting at the moment? and am I too late with my annuals?
