Best Growing Conditions
Strawberry 'Christine' will produce plants with large very bright orange-red fruit. It has an exceptionally fine sweet flavour and is one of the best early variety for disease resistance. It happily produces runners, enabling you to quickly increase your 'patch' or replace older plants. Before planting, soak in water to hydrate. Plant in garden or pot and maintain soil moisture.
Strawberry bare root plants
There are several reasons why buying strawberry bare root plants can be a great choice for gardeners. First, bare roots are generally less expensive than potted plants and can be easier to transport and plant. Additionally, bare roots often have stronger root systems and are less likely to experience transplant shock, leading to healthier and more robust plants. Finally, starting plants from bare roots allows gardeners to have greater control over the growing conditions and can lead to higher yields and better quality fruit.
Here are the general steps to grow strawberry bare root plants in the UK:
- Choose a suitable location: Select a sunny spot in your garden with well-draining soil. Avoid areas prone to waterlogging.
- Prepare the soil: Dig in some well-rotted manure or compost to improve the soil structure and fertility.
- Plant the bare roots: Soak the roots in water for an hour before planting. Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the roots, and plant them with the crown (the part where the leaves emerge) at soil level.
- Water the plants: Give the plants a good watering after planting, and then keep the soil moist but not waterlogged.
- Mulch the plants: Apply a layer of organic mulch, such as straw or wood chips, around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
- Maintain the plants: Keep the soil moist throughout the growing season, and feed the plants with a balanced fertilizer every four to six weeks. Remove any runners that emerge to encourage the plants to focus on producing fruit.
- Harvest the fruit: Pick the strawberries when they are fully ripe and red, and enjoy the sweet, juicy taste of fresh, homegrown fruit!
Remember to keep an eye out for pests and diseases, and take appropriate action if necessary. With a little care and attention, you can enjoy a bountiful harvest of strawberries from your bare root plants in the UK.
Something interesting about our strawberries
Strawberries have more Vitamin C than oranges! That’s right, ounce for ounce, strawberries actually contain more Vitamin C than oranges, which are often thought of as the ultimate Vitamin C source. In fact, one serving of strawberries (about 8 medium-sized berries) contains 140% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C, while the same serving size of oranges contains only about 85%. So if you’re looking for a healthy and delicious way to boost your Vitamin C intake, look no further than the humble strawberry!
