Growing at a glance…

Take some precaution to deter slugs as they will love to attack your strawberry plants (for example use slug pellets). They will continue to provide fruit for two to three years following planting. Late autumn and spring planted bare rooted specimens are better with blooms removed in May to build strength for future seasons heavy crops.Strawberries require planting in rich soil and in a sunny position, planting in rows. Plant at approx 45cm apart, leaving 60cm between each row. If planting in containers plant five-six plants in each pot and water daily during the growing season.

How to Plant

Best planted in March to April for harvest in summer. Plant in a sunny position for the best quality crops. Ensure your plant is given enough space, at least 35cm apart from each other. Spread out the roots of each strawberry plant. In the bottom of the hole, create a mound or hill of soil that is flush with the surrounding soil level. Place the plant on top of the hill inside the hole, so that the crown is at soil level and spread the roots out down the sides. Finally, fill in the hole and press firmly on the soil around the roots. Water thoroughly.

When to Plant

As we mentioned, the best time to plant Strawberry loose roots is from March to April. If supplied as a plug or module, these can be planted out as soon as they arrive.

Where to Plant

Strawberries are perfect for planting anywhere as long as they get enough sunshine. This includes allotments in the soil, in medium to large containers, or in a heated greenhouse.

Protecting Strawberries from Weather

Although most soft fruits are hardy when dormant, when in harvestable states, they’re at risk of becoming damaged. If frosts appear after two weeks from them flowering, then protection must be given. Avoid planting in frost pockets or against a south-facing wall, but if you’re still concerned then use a fleece to protect them from frost.

How to Harvest

When harvesting strawberries, you don’t want to get too ahead of yourself. Wait until they’re red all over before picking, as they won’t ripen once off the plant. Pinch the fruit off of the stalk to avoid bruising.
