Strawberries are a herbaceous short-lived perennial, prized for the delicious fruit that it bears mainly in spring to autumn. They have white flowers, and there is also a pink flowered variety.
Strawberries need a slightly acidic, well drained, rich soil and regular watering to produce well. They will grow well in pots and raised garden beds, as they get good air movement around them which helps to control fungal diseases. Strawberries can be propagated from the runners that they regularly send out, which should be removed to retain the plants vigour.
