Hello I have had my strawberry bed for three years now and they crop well. I have been informed that I should create a new one as they could become diseased ?? Can anyone please advise and if I do have to do a new bed do I have to buy new plants or just transplant the ones I have ?? Many thanks.

Hi Everyone,

Haven't been on for ages, too busy with my new garden, which is turning into a bit of a nightmare.  It slopes gently downwards, and, as you would expect in Cornwall, with all the rain there is a damp bit at the bottom.  No problem really, I'll cope with that.  But it has a small round island bed, 5ft across, once populated by a terrible dead apple tree, and bluebells......loads of 'em.  I love bluebells, but couldn't stand the ugliest old tree stump in the world, and dug out the stump, dug out the blue bells and moved those I wanted to keep, and intend to fill my nice round hole with cobbles, topped by a birdbath. 

Well I've dug out fine enough but now my nice round hole is a mini pond every time it rains.  Before I start to fill it up with cobbles, I need to lay drainage.  Any suggestions, i.e. coarse stones, then fine grit, a semi permeable membrane? Ideas would be so welcome, as we already have one pond and don't need another!  Help needed here!  Thanks in advance.
