Fun in the sun

Well I have planted the strawberries. I was assured they could be planted straight away and I am a bit concerned I know it looks sunny in the pics and it was, at least when I was taking the pics but then it turned very cold and the following morning it was very frosty and I have to say there have been a few frosty mornings since. I even took advice from garden centre and bought strawberry compost which hopefully will give them a fighting chance. The planter is very decorative and I can picture the stawberries cascading over the top and tumbling down the sides. My plan B is if the strawberries don't grow I can always use the planter for my flowers which I'm sure will look equally nice ...only they won't be strawberries. I was also told by garden centre to protect them from birds by covering them with some sort of netting which I am working on. Let me know if you have any advice for me all comments very much appreciated.


  1. Your strawberries look beautiful!
    I'm sure they will grow perfectly, even if its a little bit cold where you live!
    I really really love your blog, its awesome!
    and your etsy shop is just wonderful too!
    I'm def. going to follow it!

  2. Hi, I'm so glad to see the strawberries are in! If you think it might be too cold you can cover them up at night with something to protect from the frost. I think a cloth will do it.

  3. Fantastic - my mother-in-law would love that planter!
