How To Grow Strawberries


Success With Strawberries

  • Select a sunny position.
  • If you are planting in a garden, ensure your soil is well drained and friable. If planting into a pot, use a premium potting mix.
  • Add organic fertilizer to the soil and cultivate it through.
  • If planting in a garden bed, strawberries can be planted through black plastic, weed mat or sugar cane mulch. This reduces weeding and watering while keeping the fruit clean.
  • Plant strawberries 30cm apart.
  • Water well until established.
  • Fortnightly application of liquid fertilizer is beneficial.
  • Harvest regularly, every 3-4 days, as this enables the new fruit to develop to full maturity.
