Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews

An excellent mid-season Dutch variety, producing heavy crops of glossy, orange-red fruit with a delicious sweet flavour. Now available as two year old plants, you can expect to harvest 400-500g of fruit in the first year, which is 4-5 times more fruit than a standard strawberry plant would produce! A supermarket favourite, Elsanta strawberries have a good storage life and are less prone to bruising than many varieties. The juicy berries can be picked from mid-June through to mid-July and are perfect for making your own jams or for freezing to enjoy when out of season. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Flowering Months Harvest Months
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.
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.

Elsanta Plants 2014-04-14

Plants arrived about 2 months late, which in Winter does make a difference. 2 plants failed to produce ann new shoots, finally dug them out this weekend. Rest of the plants have shown decent growth.

Elsanta mother plants 2014-04-14

Plants arrived packaged well, albeit they came more than a month late (it may have actually been two months late), and especially in Winter this make a huge difference. Two of the plants didnt produce any new growth and this weekend I had to consign them to the compost bin.
