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.
