Strawberries - This year we have gone mad and made a birdproof strawberry cage and planted up two victorian style planters with new strawberryplants. The strawberries have been fantastic, but have been told that year two is better than year one - my worry is that when we planted them we incorporateed a slow release fertiliser which will obvioulsy be used up by this season. Were the strawberries this year so good due to the fertiliser? and if so how do I fertilise next year without emplying and replanting with more slow release capsules?
Also I have noticed a few vine weevils fall to the ground whilst picking the strawberries - how do I control them?
If anyone has got any advise on these two questions would be very grateful
