Strawberry Plants Marshmelts x5

  • Catalogue Code 1060-5919
  • Pack Contents: 5 bare root plants

New and exclusive from Marshalls Seeds from January 2016. This late-season strawberry is sweeter than Elsanta and uniform in shape so it makes easy picking and the fruits simply melt in the mouth. With upright habit and dense foliage fruit is shielding from rainfall, keeping the fruit dry and rot-free.

Grow these strawberries in open soil 45cm (18in) apart of in containers around 20-30cm (8-12in) apart and water well mornings and evenings to establish well. As the plants start to flower introduce a high-potash feed with waterings to encourage prolific flowering and fruiting.

Harvests of delicious fruit increase yearly after the first year; be sure to introduce root-enhancing feed in autumn of each year; this increases the root network that in turn encourages more flowering-growth the following year.

Fruit is excellent picked and eaten straight from the plant or as a dessert ingredient. Consider adding a dash of balsamic vinegar to intensify flavours.
