Strawberries

Organic Strawberries are incredibly easy to grow. Strawberry plants can be grown almost anywhere – in borders, containers or hanging baskets. And of course the fruit is extremely popular – home-grown strawberries taste delicious.

Water frequently while new plants are establishing. Also water during dry periods in the growing season. Try to avoid wetting crowns and fruit as this can promote disease.

In early spring, apply organic liquid seaweed. During the growing season, give strawberry plants a liquid organic potash feed. As fruits start to develop, tuck straw or fibre mats underneath plants to keep fruit clean. This will also help suppress weeds. Pull out any weeds that do emerge.After cropping has finished, cut off old leaves from summer-fruiting strawberries to allow fresh leaves to develop.
