Had a quick search for this and there doesn't appear to be a specific forum for gardening. I suppose the subject occasionally overlaps with the Cookery and DIY forums, but would there be any interest in a specific place to exchange gardening tips (and of course post smug photos of your prize winning dahlias)

I for one would be interested. Anyone else?

Grow your own strawberries, you'll never buy shop bought, forced crap again!

I started to paint my fence by hand today.....soon realised spending £19.98 on a spray device was probably a good investment !

I got 3 tomato plants free but they aren't doing much so far - any tips welcome :)
otherwise I have mint, chives and parsley. The rocket isn't doing too well this year. I got some seeds for aubergine, beetroot, coriander, onion, radish, pumpkin and melon (all free :) )so must plant them at the weekend!

Get the best bang for the bucks, go for the most expensive, but easy to tend stuff.

Raspberries are easy, take up little room on a south- facing fence, but give a lot of expensive treats.

Leeks are easy, all the pests hate them and they grow in a small space.

Living lettuce from certain supermarkets are immature plants, but transplanted into plastic troughs, will give months of tasty lettuce.

Parsley from small pots in supermarkets will grow on to large plants in larger pots.

Choose the expensive veg that don't keep well, forget stuff like carrots that are in season when they're cheap in the shops.
