Please excuse my ignorance as I'm totally new to this gardening lark.I'm starting small,I'm attempting to grow fruit!So far I have several small,individual pots on my kitchen window sill with cucumbers and tomatos,which are coming on leaps and bounds,well there are shoots and leaves,so that's a promising start,but now I have been bitten by the G Y O bug and bought 20 (yes 20) strawberry plants.Not sure what road to take,I went to a garden centre and bought 4 Miracle Gro Fruit & Veg planter bags to grow them in.I planted them earlier,but I'm not sure how long they're to stay in these bags,e.g am I to transfer them once established into pots or are they content to stay in the planterbags and then I support them if and when the grow?
I would invest in some pots etc,but I'm really limited to outdoor space and as I'm new to this gardening thing I'm a wee bit reluctant to spend too much if I'm not successful at it!It would be great to hear any other experiences of these planters that I might benefit from or recommendations!
Also,I have some potted Rhododendrons which look like they need something to perk them up,but I'm trying Azalea Miracle Gro feed on them also,but if that doesn't work I'll be back with some pics!
