CARE INFORMATION

Care Guide

  • Strawberries should be planted out as soon as possible - only plant outdoors once all risk of frost has gone.
    Plant in a sunny and sheltered position in fertile, free-draining soil. Poor soil can be improved by adding compost or well-rotted manure prior to planting.
  • Give your strawberries plenty of space. Dig a hole with a trowel big enough to take the roots of the plant. Plant them 45cm (18in) apart, leaving 75cm (30in) between rows - the crown should be level with the soil surface.
    If you plant strawberries too deep, they might rot, but if you leave the crown protruding from the soil, the plant will dry out and die. Firm your plants in well and water thoroughly.
  • If you're planting into a basket, it's best to limit yourself to three or four strawberry plants in a 30cm (12in) basket. Add water-retaining granules and slow-release fertiliser into the compost before planting.
  • Check the compost daily in hot weather water if the top half-inch of compost feels dry.
  • If growing strawberries in pots or hanging baskets, feed them every two weeks during the growing season with a balanced fertiliser. When flowering begins, switch to a high-potash liquid fertiliser to encourage good fruiting.
  • As the fruits develop, place dry straw or mulching fabric underneath to stop splashes blemishing the fruit.
  • After cropping, remove any straw and netting to allow better air flow around the crown of the plant.
  • As the summer progresses, keep on top of weeding and continue to remove any runners. Clear away dead foliage as this can harbour pests and diseases over winter.
  • Each spring spread a general-purpose fertiliser around your plants along with a mulch of well-rotted manure or compost.
DELIVERY INFORMATION

Our experienced team at the nursery will always carefully package and send your plants nursery fresh in the perfect condition to thrive once you receive and plant them.
