I'm very fond of Strawberries; not those bloody tasteless things that come from hundreds of acres of greenhouses in Spain, but pukka sunshine-kissed beauties from the garden.
I've just potted-up 30 new plants of a variety called 'Gariguette'; sweet and delicious with a hint of perfectly ripe wild strawberries about them. Personally I would say they are the best variety around, but then I would.
My other Strawberry plants are in old wheelbarrows, but these I think I'll plant out directly into the soil. They will need slug pellets, and anti-bird netting, but I think they'll be fine.
If anyone has any innovative hints, I would be very happy to receive them.
I'm hoping for a really good 2021 crop. God willing.
