If you also want to harvest lots of healthy strawberries next year, you should fertilise the strawberries with Organic Multipurpose Plant Food. This promotes the formation of flowers for the following year. Fertilising in August is crucial in terms of the harvest for the coming year, both in older plants as well as newly planted strawberries. Newly-planted strawberries also do well with an application of Super Strength Seaweed Extract, as this supports group formation and growth.
Soft fruit bushes do well when they are thinned out in August. This promotes the formation of strong fruit wood for the next harvest.
