For juicier, sweeter strawberries this season, add strawberry moss to your planting medium. The seasonal fruit prefer a more acid environment and sphagnum moss with an average
PH. of 4-5. will help achieve this, together with the ability to absorb and hold an impressive amount of moisture. This creates the perfect growing conditions for the production of large, healthy fruit.
Add strawberry moss to your growing medium to air-rate your soil, adding seaweed nutrition to the roots of your stock, adding a layer on top of your soil will retain moisture, reduce evaporation, whilst the natural anti fungal properties will stop the fruit from rotting.
1. Add into potting medium at point of planting, 2 handfuls of strawberry moss to a bucket (10L) of mix.
2. Apply generously around the top of the plant to boost growth and allow the fruit to sit on the moss and prevent fruit damage.
