Perennial

Hardy
Soil:

Water:
Water regularly.

50cm
Flowers:

Planting:
Keeping the root at the same level in the soil as it was in the pot, plant your strawberries 35cm (13in) apart, in rows, allowing 75cm (30in) between each row. Water in generously.
Care Tips:
Keep your strawberry bed weed-free by regular hoeing, and place a net over the developing berries once the flowering has finished, to protect your fruit from birds and squirrels. As the berries begin to ripen, place clean straw under the fruit trusses to lift them clear of the soil, and to suppress weed growth
Harvesting:
Pick the strawberries as they ripen, checking your crop at least every second day. The berries will be brightly coloured, succulent and sweet-tasting, Try to harvest them in dry weather, and ensure that you leave the green stalk (the calyx) attached to the fruit.

We are currently dispatching orders within 8 working days from the day we receive an order, with many orders being dispatched sooner.  

Each week the plants to complete orders are selected from the nursery, packaged and dispatched daily, with plants usually delivered to you the next day.  Each potted plant will arrive individually wrapped and the greatest of care will be given to ensure they arrive fresh and there is no damage during transportation. Orders aren't sent out on a Friday to reduce the risk of plants still being in transit over the weekend, although in our experience if plants are delayed we find they usually travel very well.

For plant orders we use a DPD 24 hour service, although this isn’t guaranteed, DPD will send you an email and/or SMS messages to let you know how your order is tracking and the expected one hour delivery time slot. If you may not be available to take delivery of your order please enter alternative instructions (maximum of 50 characters) in your order details. Hetty highly recommends downloading the DPD App as you can track your order and update delivery instructions if need be.  

Non-plant only orders may be sent via a Royal Mail 48 hour service.

Hetty will send you an email once your order has been dispatched.

You can also view the status of your order if you have registered for a Hetty's account, not if you have shopped as a guest.

Many plants are 'ready now' and available to dispatch in the current dispatch cycle whilst other plants can be 'pre-ordered' to be be delivered in a few weeks. Hetty may at her discretion sometimes chose to split an order for no additional charge.

Delivery is charged for most mainland UK addresses at £6.00 or £3.00 for orders of only seeds. For orders over £100 delivery is free for most mainland UK addresses. Delivery to parts of Scotland and the Scottish Highlands and Island will incur an additional delivery charge which will automatically be added at the checkout.  Please note that we are unable to offer delivery to the Isle of Man, the Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland, Scottish Islands, Channel Islands or to any address outside of the UK at the present time.

For more information on our order, delivery, cancellation and returns processes please see our terms and conditions.  If however you have any questions or would like further information, then please contact us.
