Directions for use

Directions for planting in garden beds:

  1. Water plants thoroughly before planting and allow to drain.
  2. Add a layer of mix to the area and make 10cm high mounds for the strawberries to be planted on.
  3. Dig a hole, approximately twice the depth and width of the root ball of your plant, on top of the mound.
  4. Gently loosen the root ball of your plant and position in the centre of the hole.
  5. Plant 15cm apart on top of the mounds.
  6. Press soil gently around the base of the plant.
  7. Water your plant well and continue to water regularly.

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 make 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:

  1. Water plants thoroughly before potting and allow to drain.
  2. Half fill your container with Tui Strawberry Mix.
  3. Gently take the plant from the current container, loosen the root ball and remove any loose or dead plant material and roots.
  4. Position the plants in the new container and fill with Tui Strawberry Mix up to 3cm from the top.
  5. Gently firm the mix around the base of the plant. The mix should be at the same level on the plant as it was in the previous container.
  6. Water your plant well and continue to water regularly.

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.
