    Dear ‘Morgowen’,
    You can’t go wrong with tomatoes, and if this year’s Spring/summer weather is like last year they’ll be bountiful. If you’re not very confident start off buying some ready made tomato plants from EBay – “Moneymaker” or “Alicante” are two good kinds, and remember to get some good sturdy canes. Mint is dead easy to grow in a planter or large plastic pot, which goes nicely with potatoes which are also easy to grow. I use patio planter bags for mine as I have a v.small garden, if you wish you can buy them from Amazon (£11 for 3 bags) or EBay or again most reputable DIY stores. Lastly, another easy fruit to grow is strawberries – either grow in a large patio tub or buy as plug plants to hang as a planter. Hope that’s of help? And good luck.
    Cheers,
    Helen

    Hey Helen,
    Do you use the patio bags for your tomatoes or potatoes or both?
    Cheers

    Hi ElaineR,
    I use a potato grow bag which has a clear panel to see how the spuds are doing. As for the tomatoes, I use a high planter with a teepee arrangement of canes simply because I find that easier. I also have no love for slugs and snails, so a high planter on two bricks makes life difficult for them! Have used a gro-bag in the past, and as I’ve only got a small garden found it used up too much space. Good luck this year, hope it all goes well.

    Hi, I am also new to gardening. I have just got rid of my tatty grass and put in artificial turf so I can concentrate on growing some beautiful flowers and maybe some fruit as well. I have a 4 year old cherry tree and plum tree, a three year old pear tree and a teo year old victoria plum. they are in blossom at the moment. i did put some glue wraps on them last october as advised by my friend. i have just planted a couple of strawberries. the rest of my pots and planters are flowers.
    Does anybody know anything about a honey berry?

    Hi, recently moved to a house that has a fair size garden. One side was covered in brambles. Hard work getting rid of those. Garden was covered in liner and gravel in 2006 so I’m hoping it got lovely soil underneath 😁. A third of one side will be a veg plot eventually, not as big as an allotment but it’s only 2 of us. It’ll be divided by a fence and archway, looking for ideas for easy to manage climbers that will give some colour and be ok in pots.

    Hi @triplechance
    Lonicera caerulea also known as blue honey suckle (honey berries) are a really different but easy to grow berry. Just make sure to plant at least 2 and preferably more to help with pollination.
