These Strawberry Plants Are Sent Out As Bare Root (Ie Not Potted Up Or In Soil) Plants. They Are Completely Dormant, So Any Remaining Foliage Or Stems Will Look Shrivelled And Dry. They Should Be Planted Out Within A Couple Of Days Of Arrival. Once They Are Planted Out They Will Emerge From Their Dormancy And Start To Put On New Growth In Spring (Or Within 4-6 Weeks If Planted In The Spring)

Care Of Bare Root Perennials

Choose A Spot In Full Sun And Prepare The Bed Well By Removing All The Weeds And Digging In A Generous Amount Of Compost. You Can Also Work In Some General Purpose Fertiliser If Planting In The Spring. Remove The Plant From Its Packaging And Carefully Remove All Loose Packing Material. Soak The Roots In A Bucket Of Warm Water For About 30 Minutes. Examine The Root System And Trim Away Any Rotted, Mouldy Or Broken Roots With A Sharp Knife. Dig A Hole Deep And Wide Enough To Allow The Roots To Fan Out From The Crown At About 45º Angle. It Sometimes Helps To Make A Cone-Shaped Mound Of Soil In The Bottom Of The Hole And Spread The Roots Around It. Remember The Crown Of Most Perennials Should Be Roughly Level With The Surrounding Ground. Cover The Roots With Soil And Press Down Firmly.Make Sure All The Roots-Especially Those Under The Crown-Are In Contact Wih The Soil. Space Them At 45cm Intervals, Alowing 75cm Between Each Row. Water The Plant Well And Add A Layer Of Mulch (Soil Covering). When The Strawberries Are Starting To Form, A Thick Layer Of Straw Can Be Placed Under The Plants To Stop The Fruit Touching The Soil.

Alternatively Strawberries Can Also Be Planted In Tubs, Containers And Hanging Baskets
