Harvest straw­ber­ries

Garden News (UK) - - What To Do -

While your straw­ber­ries are grow­ing, it’s ben­e­fi­cial to give them a good dose of a potash-rich food such as tomato feed ev­ery week or so, so they can set healthily with bright, large fruit. Straw­ber­ries out­side may need a li le more time to ma­ture, but those grow­ing in the green­house should be ready and ripe for pick­ing. Pick them when it’s the warm­est time of day, as the fruit is tastier then – the warmth and sun­shine bring out the sweet­ness in them. Green­house fruit should be fairly safe from pests, but out­side your fruit­ing plants may need ne ing to stop them be­ing nib­bled.
