As a strawberry lover and with Wimbledon season approaching, I couldn't resist squeezing another strawberry bed into my new plot.
My aim is to try to extend the season as much as possible for my strawberries. I therefore have planted Honeoye, an early variety and Florence, a later variety.
I took the liberty of putting eight plants into the greenhouse and these have already flowered, approximately three weeks ahead of the outside plants.
The good news, whatever varieties you have planted, is that all this cold weather is apparently very good for strawberries. It causes the plants to bulk up and produce larger, sweeter fruits.
My family will be very happy, I will need to start stockpiling jam jars ready for plenty of jam making I have planned!
