Planting Pot Grown Strawberry Plants

Once your strawberry plants arrive, if the roots are dry place them in some water for a few hours and then put the plants in freshly dug and weeded soil that has been enriched with manure or chicken poo tea.

Cultural Instructions 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. 

Plant in full sun Fruits June to late July Trim back annually after all fruit had been plucked. Often expensive when shop bought, so grow your own - it's easy from seed and more satisfying!
