    Hello and welcome!

    No matter how small the number of strawberries, home-grown ones knock the spots off shop-bought ones...

    Hi Zoe and welcome to the nuthouse! We're all friendly in here, though you will find that some of the seniors will bicker like children :P

    Congratulations on your allotment! I'm also lucky enough to be able to pick and choose my plot, so... I have two! LOL You add interest for us all if you ask questions - we all learn from all questions asked And most of all, remember that you have your way of gardening, and don't have to heed ALL advice given!

    Personally I follow the no-dig method advocated by Charles Dowding and I swear by it, but of course, others will not even consider veg growing without their trusty spade and fork

    Good luck with it all! And don't get too stressed

    Thanks all!
    @bikermike- they were amazing. So sweet. I can see why the wildlife go crazy for them. Itís been quite rewarding to finally have my own strawberries, shortly before getting the plot I experimented with indoors ones. They werenít keen on being hydroponicked and I resorted to one in soil, that got powdery mildew and gave up.
    @Sariss- Iíve been reading up about no dig too, and it fits in with trying to be kinder to the environment and some of the reasons Iíve gone for the land. Iíve found that the gardening world is full of all sorts of at times, advice. Also I had no idea about added peat in compost and was really saddened by that, also went to a talk on food scarcity recently and learned about the marine dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico... it really is a minefield and itís hard to know what to do that wonít hurt something in nature!

    Who are you calling elderly - I resemble that remark.

    And I also swear at the garden - so there

    + PS I never bicker, I merely state my opinion with great dignity -- so there +1
