I like the idea of the yellow minulus round the bottom , it's looking great !

thanx amy i thought of different colours around it but then decided yellow would go better and lift the leaf colours out ;o)

Lovely Sandra, my acers aren't quite in leaf yet. Be careful of the wind as they can get wind burn.

thats what worries me dawn, but i dont know what to do as i cant move the barrel its so heavy ;o( my other isnt in leaf either dawn, maybe i should make a screen with canes and fleece to protect it, what do you think
cheers amy ;o)

Your planted up tub looks nice Sandra. I have a strawberry tower which is quite heavy to move. I salvaged four castors off some old suitcases we had and made a wooden base for it to sit on. I can now move it and turn it around to catch the sun -little project for Baz to keep him out of mischief..lol :-)

I think some varieties are more susceptible than others, mine are in an open position and get a bit burnt but mine are green ones, hopefully Amy can help.

San they are really woodland plants, like some dappled shade, not keen on wind and scorching sun, we have ours protected by larger shrubs, hope this helps.

Looks great planted up, Sanbaz. You can buy pot 'wheels' at various places, Sanbaz, and some are quite reasonably priced :)
