POLLINATION
The Strasberry and the Pineberry are not self pollinating. This means they need a little help from a red strawberry friend. Simply plant the Strasberry/Pineberry 30cm away from any quality red Strawberry.

United Nurseries recommends pollinators such as, Kamu Big Red or Alinta. Alina is a 9-month fruiter and Kamu Big Red will give you huge, succulent strawberries.
The Bubbleberry is self-pollinating and doesn’t require a red strawberry friend.

STRAWBERRY PLANTING GUIDE

Select a sunny section ensuring that the soil is well drained and friable. For best results add animal manure and compost. Cultivate thoroughly. Plant 30cm apart. Water well until established.

Alternatively strawberry plants can be planted through black plastic. This reduces both weeds and watering while keeping the fruit clean. For small gardens strawberries can be grown in baskets and tubs. For best results use a premium potting mix and liquid feeding after plants are established ( use once a week when flowering.)

Strawberries need to be harvested regularly every three or four days as this enables new fruit to develop to full maturity.
