Pick your own large, deliciously sweet strawberries from the beginning of June! These superb strawberry plants show good resistance to mildew and other diseases making Strawberry ‘Christine’ one of the best of the early varieties. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 30cm (12").
‘Misted tip’ plants are cell raised, enabling them to establish quicker than traditional bare root strawberry plants. As a result you will get not only a faster established strawberry crop, but also a more plentiful crop producing up to 100% more fruit in the first year, compared to planting bare root runners.
Culinary information: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Click here for more details about edible flowers.

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 straw either side of each plant to protect developing fruit from slugs and raise fruits off of the ground. Place a net over the plants to protect your crop from greedy birds!
After cropping remove netting and straw to allow better air flow around the crown of the plant. Mulch strawberry plants with well rotted manure every spring. 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.
