1 Plant anew: Pick a sunny, well-drained spot. Add gen­eral fer­tiliser be­fore plant­ing. Mound soil up so wa­ter drains well. 2 Tidy plants: Re­move old, yel­low­ing or dis­eased leaves, un­wanted run­ners and old straw from un­der­neath to let air flow. 3 Prop­a­gate: Put a com­post­filled pot into the soil. Peg down run­ners into the pot. Wait for root­ing be­fore trans­plant­ing. 4 Feed: Give plants a boost by sprin­kling with blood, fish and bone or chicken ma­nure pel­lets, work­ing it into the soil.
