Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Strawberry ‘Vibrant’ is a fantastic heavy cropping early variety, with medium to large glossy red berries that are carried on strong upright stems. Large numbers of flowering trusses are produced in succession, giving an extended cropping period from May right through June, and from the second year will offer a subsequent crop in September. Each truss can carry 4 to 5 flowers producing larger fruits than many other varieties. Once you have tasted the flavour of this super-charged variety, it is sure to be your favourite. Delicious with cream, or in a fruit salad.

Plant strawberry plants in September or April in a sheltered, sunny position in well drained soil. Dig in a generous helping of well rotted manure. Plant one strawberry plant 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. Planting too deeply may cause them to rot! Alternatively grow strawberry plants in hanging baskets or in specially designed strawberry planters for the patio.
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.
