Strawberries must be one of the worlds finest fruit, easy to grow, fast to fruit and so tasty and delicious when picked and eaten fresh. In-fact Strawberries are so good we consume thousands of tonnes of them every Summer! Due to the popularity of these bright red fresh fruits, poly tunnels dedicated to growing our favourite fruit can be found all across Europe simply to meet the demand for all year round fresh strawberries. Yet strawberries are one of the simplest plants to grow, harvest and propagate, so it begs the question why aren’t more of us growing this nutritious fruit for ourselves? I grow hundreds of new strawberry plants, every season to replace old stock plants and give some to friends and family.
There are so many reasons why you should invest in named varieties of Strawberry plants, even a small garden can house a few dozen plants and failing that there is always strawberry planters or wall hanging containers and troughs used to maximise space for growing fresh strawberries. Buying Strawberry plants is easy, you can buy runners from named varieties online or visit your local garden centre or farmers market at the right time of year.
