Strawberries

Recommended Posts

I bought 7 plants and put them in a raised bed. To be honest they weren't worth having. The blackbirds nicked a few but I bet Iv not had 15 berries.

 

I've got an allotment from September. I want to get rid of the strawberries and put lettuce in at home cos we eat loads. Is it worth transplanting the strawberries up the allotment or shall I just bin em and buy new plants as these have been shit?

 

I know you will probably say might as well try em up the lottie but it's going to mean missing of on bed space if I leave em till September or a major fuss to plant em somewhere else then move em again in September. Shall I just bin em as rubbish plants and try different varieties? There is loads of foliage on em so perhaps I just over fed em?

Little slugs and woodlice race the kids to the ripe strawberries at our house.
