Strawberries - Sweet Success

Strawberries – Sweet Success

With spring around the corner there’s no better time to make plans for a haul of sweet and succulent #strawberries. #BenedictVanheems recommends his favourite varieties and creates a strawberry bed

It’s almost the start of another promising growing season. If there’s one way to bring on the excitement of summer plenty it’s to make preparations for that best-loved of home-grown fruit, the strawberry.

It has been said many times but it’s worth reiterating – just-picked strawberries, popped straight into the mouth, are a complete taste sensation. Strawberries snaffled from the plant on a warm summer’s day have that intoxicating marriage of heavenly aroma and fill-the-mouth flavour that supermarket punnets don’t get anywhere near.
