You will receive 3 bare root strawberry plants per pack. Each strawberry will arrive with a plant base attached to roots.Soak the roots in warm water for 30 minutes or so before planting to rehydrate the roots. Strawberries are best grown in a sunny sheltered spot in an area that has had plenty of well-rotted manure or compost dug in.Plant them approximately 30-45cms apart and, if you are planting a whole strawberry bed in your allotment or veggie patch then, allow 75cms between rows to allow the plants to grow fully. Plant at the depth of the roots, spreading them out in the prepared hole and back fill with soil keeping the crowns (top of the plants) at soil level.Water after planting and then mulch around the plants with bark to help retain the moisture. As the plants mature, pinch out any runners if you do not need extra plantlets.When cropping is over, remove old foliage, and feed with a balanced fertiliser such as Aim to replace strawberry plants every three years as their crops reduce over the seasons.
