We've added extra potassium to this mix - just what your strawberry plants need to encourage a plentiful harvest of big juicy fruit.

Benefits

  • 100% weed free.
  • Rich in nutrients for seedling growth and to enhance fruit and flower production.
  • Contains Saturaid for efficient water distribution.
  • Suitable for use in garden beds, pots and containers; and for other berry varieties.

Directions for use

Directions for planting in garden beds:

  • Choose a sunny position.
  • Water plants thoroughly before planting and allow to drain.
  • Add a layer of Tui Strawberry Mix to the area and make mounds for strawberries to be planted on.
  • Gently loosen the root ball of your plant.
  • Plant 150mm apart on the top of the mounds.
  • Press soil gently around the base of the plant.
  • Water your plant well.

If you're short on garden space, strawberry plants grow well in hanging baskets. Or you can plant straight into this bag - just remember to small drainage holes underneath. Five or six plants will fit in a bag when it is lying flat.

Directions for planting in pots and containers:

  • Water plants thoroughly before potting and allow to drain.
  • Partly fill your container with Tui Strawberry Mix.
  • Gently loosen the root ball of your plant and position the plant in the container.
  • Fill your container with Tui Strawberry Mix up to 3cm from the top.
  • Tap the container gently on the ground to settle the mix.
  • Press soil gently around the base of the plant.
  • Water your plant well.

A good rule of thumb is to plant five strawberry plants for each member of the household.

Add a layer of Tui Strawberry Straw around plants to keep the fruit clean, and retain soil moisture.
