Growing Calendar for Strawberry Plants - Red Gauntlet
Delivery: Early October to Late June
Strawberry ‘Red Gauntlet’ is a mid season variety that produces a heavy crop of large fruit, which are held well above the ground, from June often producing a smaller second crop in autumn. If you prefer to grow under cloches or tunnels then this is a good variety to choose. Strawberry ‘Red Gauntlet’ also has some resistance to Botrytis.
Strawberries are easy to grow and produce a bumper crop. They can be planted in the ground, in containers and even hanging baskets. Provide some protection from the birds by using netting and plant them in a position where there is lots of sun.
