Growing Strawberries

Strawberries are incredibly easy to grow. Strawberry  can be grown in all sorts of ways, in borders, containers or hanging baskets and remember to add lots of organic matter such as compost or well-rotted manure before planting strawberry plants.
From planting out to picking, strawberries are the fastest fruit you can grow to give you a crop and at home the taste of strawberries will be unlike any you buy



Growing Citrus can be tricky as they like lots of light, feeding well in the growing season but dont like to be kept wet, but they are tough and even very poorly specimens can be revived.
Lemons and Oranges are great to grow purely for scent and the odd fruit but my favorite is Kaffir Lime as its an essential  ingredient in Thai cooking and almost Impossible to buy fresh and the fresh leaves add so much more to a dish when used.
