Growing Strawberries at home

Denis is one of our Strawberry growers here at Keelings and he has lots of tips on planting your own Strawberries at home!

A few key things to remember before you start growing are that plants generally require the following elements in order to grow successfully; light, suitable temperature, moisture which incorporates adequate drainage, feed and a growing medium for the plant such as soil, peat or even a hydroponic system.

Ireland is only a small island, yet our soil conditions, aspect and weather patterns vary considerably from one location to another. Good gardeners love to share – upload your pictures on social media using the hashtag #LittleGrowers
