GARDENERS who would like to grow their own strawberries in 2009 can go along to a free event dedicated to the fruit this weekend.
Wyevale Garden Centre in Codicote High Street will be offering advice in its first ever Strawberry Growing Weekend today (Saturday) and tomorrow (Sunday).
There will also be planting demonstrations at selected times throughout the two days.
A spokeswoman said: "Strawberries take up hardly any room so can be grown on patios and even balconies.
You may also want to watch:
They produce attractive, delicate, white flowers and delicious fruit, and are easy to maintain.
"They are the perfect plant for novice gardeners who would like to grow their own fruit and vegetables for the first time this year."
