Plant strawberry plants in autumn or late spring in a sheltered, sunny position in well manured, free draining soil. Plant strawberry runners every 45cm (18") in rows spaced at 75cm (30") apart. Spread out their roots and place them in the soil at a level where the crown of the plant is just poking above the surface. Avoid planting them too deeply as this may cause them to rot. Alternatively try growing strawberry plants in hanging baskets or in specially designed strawberry planters for the patio.

Water strawberries frequently throughout the growing season and weed regularly between rows. When growing strawberry plants in baskets and containers, they will also need feeding every two weeks.


From early summer, remove any runners that are produced as these will weaken the plants vigour. Protect the developing fruit from slugs and snails by spreading straw around each plant. Positioning a net over the plants will also prevent crop damage by birds. The netting and straw can be removed after cropping to allow better air flow around the crown of the plant. Mulch strawberry plants with well rotted manure in spring.


Although strawberry plants will continue to fruit in successive years, the crop will become considerably reduced and it is advisable to completely replace strawberry plants every 3 years.

Seeds and garden supplies will normally be delivered within the time period stated against each product as detailed above.

  1. Flamenco is a disappointment

    By Tia Hammond 16-04-2016

    The cambridge and florence plants are growing well and i am looking forward to seeing fruits in the summer. However out of the 4 flamenco runners, only 1 is growing, looks like the other 3 are dead as they have no new growth. 1 out of 4 is not great, so not too happy about this.

  2. Good although not full season

    By Craig Forrest 06-10-2015

    The runners were of good quality and quickly started to grow. The fruits were of good size and very sweet and juicy. Bit disappointed that there was a few weeks in July/August were there was no yield. Not exactly full season.
