Plant strawberry bareroots in the Autumn. Choose a sheltered, sunny position in well drained compost such as John Innes No.2.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. Planting too deeply may cause them to rot!
Water strawberries frequently throughout the growing season. Feed container grown plants every two weeks.Remove any runners that are produced in early summer as these will weaken the plants vigour. (They look like a long flexible stem with a baby plant at the very end). In May, place a net over the plants to protect your crop from greedy birds! Although strawberry plants will continue to fruit in successive years, the crop will become considerably reduced and it is advisable to completely replace plants every 3 years.
