Fragaria - x ananassa - 'Gigantella Maxim'
Description:
Your hands will be full with these strawberries! The "Gigantella Maxim" is known for its big fruit. One strawberry can weigh up to 100 grams! The strawberries are juicy, sweet and flavourful. The strawberry plant is perfect for the garden. The plant can also be placed on the patio or balcony in a pot. You will receive the strawberries as bare-root stock in sugar cane sacking. This is more environmentally friendly than plastic nursery pots. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to grow faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They flower better and they are more economical. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. They are winter-hardy perennials. They can be planted at any time, provided that the ground is not frozen. The plant flowers in May and June. Once that is over, it's time to pick the strawberries! Plant it in full sun or half shade. Strawberry plants need water. It's best to give the plant extra water during dry periods.

Planting+
Plant your strawberry plants (Fragaria x ananassa) immediately upon receipt into pots and planters or, into the garden. If potting them up, do ensure good drainage. Layer a pot with holes in the base with gravel or hydro-pellets. Line a porous pot with plastic or use plastic pots. This prevents evaporation and the root ball will not dry out so quickly.
Add fresh potting compost to your pot and plant your strawberry plant (Fragaria x ananassa) at the right depth. Planting distance is approx. 20 cm. Fill the pot and press it all firmly in. Water immediately and stand the pot in full sun.
Care+
Feed your strawberries in the spring with our special strawberry fertiliser. Do not use one with too much nitrogen because that makes them watery. Keep the bed free of weed and water extra in dry periods. A nice mulch is recommended because it helps keep the soil moist as well as protecting the fruit from rot.
If not planted over black plastic, layer some straw under and around your strawberry plants. The foliage of the strawberry plants looks unsightly a few weeks after harvesting, it's then time to cut it all back, leaving only young growth coming through. Remove suckers too.
These plants usually remain in the same spot two years in a row. Then we recommend creating a new bed in a different place with young plants. Strawberries also grow well in pots and planters, but you need to store them in a cool frost-free area for the winter.
