I have seen strawberries grown commercially at a height perfect for picking. What is the best way to achieve this? Cheers, Si.



Strawberries are grown on stands for pick your own. There was a programme on TV featuring this recently.

in days of old people used to get wooden barrel's drill holes in them from about half way up and in the bottom for drainage,fill with just soil and put their strawberry's in the holes,but that was befor we were kidded that we needed growbags and compost for every thing,
