Hello! I was interested in the Uk but sort of let it go when I moved to Cyprus as theres no-where to buy the stuff here in the north. I was going to try strawberries! Can you buy the equipment in the South?

And why would anybody want to do that? We run out of soil? This "chemical food" part doesn't sound like something healthy to me!
