Fragaria ananassa 'Gasana' is a stunning variety of strawberry which is both ornamental and edible, combining showy pink bloomed flowers with delicious juicy and sweet fruit. With double blooms in a vibrant shade of pink, this strawberry will look equally at home among your favourite herbaceous perennials as well as the vegetable plot.
Ornamental strawberry plants keep their flowers for longer than their single-flowered cousins. The dark green foliage forms neat mounds with fewer runners, so they can concentrate all of their energy into producing superb crops of delicious fruits. Perfect for the front of sunny borders, patio pots or window boxes. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 30cm (12").

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.
