 Not sure if we'll have any strawberries left after Floss has had her share!

Can't say that I've noticed a significant difference in sound quality. Fine for me.

 Floss has me well trained. Gets me to hold her bone with my feet so she can get a better angle for chewing.

If you can get some capillary matting you could use that. I put my pots in a large tray with capillary matting in the bottom with a shallow layer of gravel over it. The other end of the capillary matting is put into a bucket or trough. The matting will draw up water as required.

I would also make sure the greenhouse is left open and some sort of shading erected.

The top picture is mild steel rod, easy to bend. The bottom one is rebar, a lot harder to bend and usually only available from 8mm diameter upwards.

Hi Christine, if you ask for ' rebar' you will have trouble bending it. You need 6mm mild steel rod.
