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.

Grow strawberry plants in a sheltered, sunny position in well manured, free draining soil. Plant strawberries at intervals of 45cm (18") in rows spaced at 75cm (30") apart, at a level where the crown of the plant is just poking above the soil 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.

Not worth the money 2015-02-20

Very disappointed so far but will update once they fruit. Plants are very small and contained lots of weed seeds which have now sprouted. The remaining plants don't look that healthy either. The weeds seem to be doing better than the strawberries - one has already died and a second looks to be on the way out. For a set of strawberries that cost me £27, I am very disappointed. Should have used the money to buy punnets at the supermarket instead. I am not surprised that the 12 pack is seriously discounted now.
