Before You Buy Your Soft Fruit Plants

When to plant Soft Fruit: Most of our soft fruit are available year round, either pot-grown or bareroot. Strawberries are only available bareroot, during winter.

Preparation: It is ideal to prepare the soil well in advance of planting by killing the weeds, digging the soil over to remove stones etc and adding in some well rotted manure / compost. While some of our soft fruit varieties are tolerant of poor soil, any fruiting plant prefers a rich soil to perform really well, year after year.
