We’ve got a bit more into gardening this year as due to the weather we’ve been able to spend a lot more time outdoors! We’re never going to be really green fingered so we’ve decided to upgrade the garden in like a patio / rockery style with big colourful planters. We also would like a few statutes preferably in stone. Any ideas where to see a good selection? Not big on the Roman goddess type but more animals, birds etc. Thanks !! Xxx

I remember trying to grow tomoatoes. The plant was out of control and my crop was a tomato smaller than a cherry one. It died in the end

I have a strawberry plant on the go at the moment which has quite a few strawberries developing

To be honest I would suggest going to a market if you have any in your area.

We used to go to a big outdoor Sunday market and I bought plenty of garden ornaments for half the price you would pay at any DIY stores or garden centres etc.

This is the first year I have lost interest a bit with my garden. What with the dog keep digging holes, and all the dry weather doing it's best to kill everything off.  shake head

You have to break off the bottom shoots so that the tomatoes develop instead of the leaves but don’t get rid of all the leaves!

My strawberries are coming along nicely too.

Solar lights are another great way of decorating the garden. Plus you get to enjoy looking out at it in the evening.
