Plant without delay, provided soil and weather conditions are favourable. Should this not be possible open the bundle of plants and place them in a box or seed tray surrounding the roots with moist potting compost.
Strawberries prefer a good, loamy, well-drained soil. Choose an open, sunny position which is sheltered from cold winds and late frosts. On no account should planting be made on ground that has recently cropped strawberries as this greatly increases the risk of disease build up. Prepare the ground prior to planting, incorporating well-rotted garden compost or manure and remove all perennial weeds. Immediately prior to planting apply a general fertiliser.
Planting should take place as soon as possible after arrival provided the soil is not over wet or frozen. If the roots are dry, soak them in tepid water for a few hours. Dig a hole large enough to spread out the roots, spacing the plants 45cm (18") apart with 75cm (30") between rows. Firm the soil around each plant and water in. If soil conditions are heavy planting can be made on a shallow (3") ridge to aid drainage.
