As attractive as they are edible, this duo of ornamental strawberries is ideal for small gardens, pots, hanging baskets and window boxes. Forming a neat mound of glossy green foliage, these compact plants produce masses of large blooms over an impressively long season, followed by sweet, bright red fruits. This pair of Fragaria hybrids is ideal for bringing a splash of colour to container displays whilst providing you with tasty fresh fruits all summer long!

Fruit Strawberry Duo comprises 9cm potted plants of the following varieties:

  • Strawberry ‘Gasana’ – an everbearing ornamental variety boasting large, showy rose-pink blooms from April right through to August. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 30cm (12").
  • Strawberry ‘Montana’ – a compact ornamental variety producing large, pure white flowers over a long season, followed by sweet, juicy fruits. Height and spread: 20cm (8").

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.

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.
