Keep your strawberries coming in to the heat of summer with Candy's (@nzgardener) tips including feeding, companion planting and more.
If you’ve been enjoying juicy berries this summer follow these tips to keep them coming!
2. Berries love sunshine! Unripe or unflavoursome berries could be due to lack of sunshine. I like to pop my berries on top of the leaves to give them a good soak and keep them up off the ground.
3. Companion planting! Good companions for strawberries are onions, borage and marigolds. These will help bring the bees in, add a pop of colour and will aid with pollination of your berries.
Don't forget to plant some flowers for the bees, some trees for the future and have a happy garden time.
