Just watched Chelsea and one Gold winner had LOADS of strawbs in hanging baskets.  They apparently tried globes but strawberries don't like growing up side down (surprised anything does really), so they turned the globes three times a day.  Then the compost in the middle turned out to be unsuitable for strawbs so they went to plan B which was hanging baskets - it looked glorious!  Why is it there are loads of flowering plants down there and very few up here at this time of year?

And a thought - does it ever rain on the Chelsea Flower Show? ???
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age
