Hey everyone,

I am researching the ins and pouts of growing strawberries on a very small commercial scale. I would like to grow strawberries and sell them locally myself.

My idea was to use on a small bit of land and I would not intend on being a huge farm. I would hope it could provide me with a little side income.

Any advice or help that anyone can offer me on such things as what forms of polytunnels etc. rough yields per acre or any info that could assist me in this pursuit would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Jck

quick question, planted up a strawberry bed last week end, want to use some of the plants for runners,

Generally how many runners can be expected per plant and is it a good idea not to let plants used for runners to bear fruit

i am glad to be able to recommend Grower guide 6 Strawberries under protection by Brian Wilson published by Grower Books
nexus published in 1997, it is an excellent production and no padding in it all good sound facts including costings.
