I did think of posting this else where but as a great deal of 'designing' has gone in to many of these gardens I thought you might get some seful ideas from it!

Strawberries

Your mum is right! Don't cut them off leave them on. What might happen if the flowers get frosted is they will abort then the plant/s will produce more flowers as there aim is to reproduce seeds, to do this they need to produce more flowers and fruit. You don't say is what size your basket is but eight plants seems a lot when you consider each plant will grow to around 12"-15" in diameter. So this situation may cause a greater reduction in potential fruit than cutting off a few flowers,

Lily Louise are you using 'photobucket'?

If you are open each individual picture up to full size.

Hold your cursor on the picture and a drop down menu will appear.

Click on it and you will get a list of sizes to choose from.

I find 640 x 480 a useful size!

Hi all I see you have been busy.

I took these between showers this afternoon, too many to display so I parked them in 'photobucket'

I think from all of what I have read in recent months about composts in particular multi- purpose, it is time for a change of name! I suggest " Not fit for purpose" compost.
