About this deal

Rubber snakes and inflatable owls mimic natural predators, but they don't work for long. Birds soon figure out that these stand-ins never move, so you need to change their position every few days, which can be quite a hassle. Items that do move, like aluminum pie pans or old CDs hung from nearby branches, or Mylar tape fluttering from stakes, blow about and make scary reflections, but don't tend to work very well. Alpine strawberries can be bought as young plants or grown from seed sown indoors in spring or autumn A great solution is built a support system to hold the netting up and over the strawberry plants. And that’s where we came up with our DIY strawberry plant cage. About Our DIY Strawberry Plant Cage

Summer-fruiting and perpetual strawberries can be bought as potted plants or bare-root plantlets known as runners:Strawberries are one of the most popular fruits to grow, as they’re compact, ideal for containers and produce deliciously sweet berries from early summer onwards. There are summer-fruiting, perpetual and alpine types to choose from, with many delicious varieties of each. The connectors, either build a balls or joiners are used to connect the 13mm crossbars, these then connect to the legs. I was impressed with the netting we used – lightweight yet still appears strong. It’s made by Jobes’ Easy Gardener division (they also manufacture the garden staples). Based in Waco, Texas, they focus on a wide range of products that make growing plants attainable for any level of gardener. Thank you Jobes!

With summer-fruiting strawberries, once cropping has finished, cut off the old leaves about 10cm (4in) above the crown to allow fresh leaves to develop. This isn’t necessary with autumn-fruiting plants – instead just remove the old leaves during the end-of-season clear-up remove the first flush of flowers on perpetual strawberry plants, so they concentrate on getting establishedOur standard off-the-shelf cages are available in 0.25m increments up to a maximum size of 9m x 9m. Strawberries can be propagated from runners (plantlets produced on long stems) in late summer, but no later than early autumn:
