The great Kiwi pavlova just wouldn't be the same without a generous topping of delicious red strawberries. Grow your own this season and you'll be the family favourite! Tui Strawberry Mix is a high quality planting mix containing the right blend of nutrients to provide your strawberries with the best possible start and sustained growth throughout the season. We've added extra potassium to this mix - just what your strawberry plants need to encourage a plentiful harvest of big juicy fruit.

Use in your garden beds, pots and containers, and you'll be harvesting a bumper crop of homegrown strawberries this summer.

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.

The combination of organic matter, blood and bone and gypsum will: help break up heavy or clay soil; improve drainage in compacted soil; and increase water holding capacity in sandy soil. It also increases microbial activity, and encourages earthworms - a gardener's best friend!
