Enjoy your ice-creams, milk shakes, smoothies or pavlova even more by adding home grown strawberries. They are highly appreciated for their luscious bright red fruit, juicy texture, and sweetness.
A must for summer cocktails, salads and desserts or perfect on their own. Plant now for berries all summer long! Strawberries are easy to grow and thrive in most sunny spots. They are one of the best super foods and are very high in antioxidants.
Strawberries do not require much space at all. They can be grown in the garden or in containers or strawberry planters, depending on the space available. Children love to grow strawberries and it becomes one of their pet projects.
Plant in full sun and rich free draining soil, and mulch with Peastraw and Lucerne to make sure the fruit does not touch the soil. Mound the bed into rows and plant in the centre, leaving 30cm between each plant. Feed regularly with liquid Strawberry food.
