I split 3 plants up into 19 more strawberry plants, I’m still unsure of the names but I know one of the plants was a white variety as I grew them from seed a few years ago.
That takes me to about 35 plants. I need approximately 60 altogether to fit into my vertical planters I am making .
I do plan on getting a variety of different coloured strawberries ready to grow next year.
I’ve also brought my grapevine indoors to bring it on over winter.
I was also given a wheelbarrow, it needs a bit of doing up, so another project to keep me going. It’s in full working order, just real flaky paintwork.
So after picking up the downpipes on Tuesday and cutting the holes into one of them, I decided to start potting up all the strawberry plants I have in the garden.
This is from just the ones randomly around the garden –
These where the ones with little to no root so have put them in water and am hoping for the best –
Tomorrow or Saturday will be the trough I was given by my aunt, I’ll pot the shoots first then go from there –
My neighbor is having a patio layed so when I seen this pallet on top I had to have it, it will make an excellent raised bed –
So yesterday I acquired a strawberry plant (unsure of the name) and some mint cuttings ( also currently unsure of type) they where potted up in the greenhouse yesterday and still look ok this morning.
Today I should be getting 3 pieces of down pipe to get me started with vertical strawberry planters. Hopefully bringing g up the yield of strawberries from about 4 -5 to a lot more than that.
So almost 3 years since I last posted, I have moved into a new house with a bigger garden and have recently acquired a greenhouse so have decided to start gardening again, mainly to get my girls into gardening.
It’s still a work in progress and has got a lot more work to do but I’m hoping to get it ready for next year to start growing nice and early.
