The key is to regularly water newly-planted plants, at least bimonthly for two months. It is also important to ensure adequate spacing between bushes, which is determined by a shrub's eventual height and spread.

Bare root and containerised plants have differing planting requirements. With bare root, it is important to soak the roots in water for up to two hours before planting, and with containerised plants, you should drench their rootball. For bare root plants, it is also beneficial to prune any woody roots back a few inches, and if you have a containerised plant, you should free any spiralized roots that are growing around the rootball's circumference. When planting, bare root plants need a graft point that is above the soil, but for containerised plants, it is better to have their pot sitting no less than an inch below the ground.

Bare root and containerised plants also share some of their planting needs; dig a hole twice the radius of the rootball, and fill the hole with a mix of compost and garden soil. After this, add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. After providing a generous watering, you can finish with a later of mulch, but keep it from touching your plant's stems.

Apply fertiliser and replace decomposed mulch come spring. Collect fallen leaves in autumn.

About Your Plants

Your strawberry plants will be sent directly from our trusted grower, based in Southern England. This means that you'll receive nursery fresh plants which were on the growing table one day, and at your door the following. Our expert nursery have spent decades perfecting the art of watering, feeding, and pruning soft fruit plants, and will do so until hours before they are packed.

Packaging

Your plants will be carefully packaged into their bespoke cardboard box, which have custom inserts that will hold them in place. If you are receiving a smaller-sized order, such as a bare root plant, it will be carefully secured into moulded packaging, before being wrapped up, and then sent out in a padded mail bag. Importantly, your plant will be delivered via the large letter postal service where there are no larger items that are capable of causing damage to your plants.

Our strawberry plants are very easy to grow and can be grown almost anywhere, whether outdoor pots or windowsills. Below, we address some common queries surrounding their care:

Position: Strawberry plants will appreciate a sunny site, but make sure that your chosen site is sufficiently sheltered too. Overly windy sites can prevent pollinators from reaching your plant.

Soil Types: Fertile, well-drained soil is best. But also avoid planting in soils that have been previously occupied by potatoes, chrysanthemums, or tomatoes. This is because these plants are prone to verticillium wilt.

Hardiness: Requiring very little attention, strawberry plants will remain hardy throughout most parts of the UK.
