Description

Grow our Strawberry 'Vibrant' and enjoy the first fruits in as little as 60 days from planting. Once you experience the flavour and long cropping of this super-charged early season strawberry you’ll never want to buy from the supermarkets again! 'Vibrant' produces beautifully uniform, medium to large conical fruits. The berries are glossy, brilliant red in colour and are carried on strong upright, flowering stems. Large numbers of flowering trusses are produced in succession thus cropping over an extended period. Each truss carries only 4 to 5 flowers thus maintaining a larger fruit. Plants crop from May through June, and from the second year will offer a subsequent crop in September. 'Vibrant' was the top rated selection for flavour in Horticultural Development Council trials and will be your personal favourite once grown in your garden.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
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.
More Info

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.
