An ideal fruit to grow in a container or small garden, the strawberry is a British classic. These easy to grow strawberries are great for new growers and expert cooks alike.. The thin green stems produce light green serrated leaves and dangling clusters of plump red fruit that are resistant to verticillium wilt, Phytophthora crown rot and other common diseases. A great and refreshing fruit that goes well with yogurt, ice cream or on its own with cream. The sweet juice of the strawberry goes amazing well with Pimm's or if crushed up with gin and tonic water. Strawberries prefer moist, well-drained soil in full sun, or light shade. Feed with a liquid fertilizer once in the spring to encourage a good yield.

What are plug plants?

Plug plants are very young plants that come ready to go in the ground. They are grown in single units in modular trays and be either seedlings or cuttings. Buying plug plants lets you fill your beds and borders easily, and in a way that is stress-free for your plant since it allows for little root disturbance.

How do you plant a plug plant?

When you first get your plant home, remove any packaging except for the pot. Place the plant in a warm and sunny space for 2-4 hours to let them recover and acclimatise. You should try to plant your plug the same day if you can. To do this, dig a hole in your desired place that is slightly larger than the root ball and soil around it and put the plug inside. Cover with the existing earth and press down lightly. Water well for the first week to help the plant establish itself and feed with an all-purpose feed after 3 weeks.
