Berry gorgeous


Our little berry farm is going well.  Although surrounded in chicken wire to keep both the dog, wildlife and three very eager frills out..  look at that strawberry - I can't believe someone hasn't snaffled it yet!

And here's the blueberries... not blue yet!

And raspberries - now no fruit on this but it's over a metre high now, which I'm really impressed as I thought we'd almost killed during the winter!!

Can't wait til we can start picking berries!  These are all in pots at present, in full sun, anything stopping you from having a berry garden or do you have one?

I love berries, but I suspect I'd need a good many more plants to sustain us!

I was only at the Garden Centre yesterday looking at the Rasberry Plants but I didn't think I had room for them! Do they grow well in pots?

Hi Ange!

Ours is going great guns! I think as it gets really bushy and big we might put it in the ground, but I think if space was an issue you could just trim it back...?

I thought it was it too warm around here for raspberries and I didn't know you could grow them in pots. I better get myself off to the garden centre, thanks x

I'm thinking of trying The Pioneer woman's Raised Flower/Vegetable beds this spring coming (if I survive winter that is! Snort! Not a winter person) and I am wondering why you have chicken wire over your berries? How does it NOT stop the berries from growing high?

Probably a stupid question but I haven't had a garden of my own so I really don't know.
