    cheap place to get hold of strawberry plants

    cheap place to get hold of strawberry plants 13th May 18 at 9:07 PM
    I have built a strawberry tower that holds 48 plants and going to move them from my exisiting growing area. I have maybe 30-45 of them.


    However I am going to build 2 more strawberry towers and would like to fill the towers this year, so by next year I have some good production.


    I know strawberries multiply like weed and waiting a couple of years should give me the number of plants I need. However I am a little impatient and willing to spend the money.


    I'm curious as to where I can source strawberry plants for cheap. I came across very small ones in b&q, which worked out 1 each (box of 8 for 8). But I am looking to get them for a lot cheaper.



    Are there any garden centres in or near London that will have what I am looking for?

    Ask on your local freecycle/freegle? Would you consider wild strawberry plants?

    Local plants fairs and car boots? Local nursery would also likely to be better quality and more likely to survive from those from the sheds.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Spread the plants you have out a bit and use the years runners to populate the gaps if you don' find any cheap enough.
