    Default Strawberries

    Hi

    I never ever bother with fruit or veg I am a flower person but this year I bought two different
    types of strawberry planter and put them on bricks and planted them up a couple of months
    ago and fed them every two days .So far lots of little ones but no big ones so I thought they
    mustnt grow very big then last night I caught them ,three thieves it was working as an organised
    gang ,yes it was Poppy ,Rosie and Lily plucking them off and down the throat they go .I wonder why Daisy
    was not involved thought she would of been the leader .
    Oh well I tried wont be doing it next year .

    Best Wishes

    Our strawberries actually grew back the last two years (or rather never really died in the winter). Maybe you won't have to replant next year to keep the girls stocked with fresh strawberries.

    We hardly get any either and just tiny ones too. Occassionally when I'm watering the other plants I'll see a ripe one and pluck to have a snack. Dogs never bother with them though.

    Lol they like to keep you on your toes!You must plant more Bri, the girls level of service has to be maintained & now they have a taste for them..........

    funny Daisy wasnt right in there tho mm..maybe she'd already had all the best ones! Dont forget to take 3 strawbs in doors- one each for you, Dawn & Luke then the girls can have the rest!

    Ha ha Bosco did that last year. It's the downside of giving them strawberries as part of their food. We have our strawberries under netting this year though they aren't growing too well at the moment -a bit too much rain and too little sun I think.
