Space the plants 40cm (16in) apart. Water well. It’s a good idea to mulch around the plants with a thick layer of well-rotted manure, planting mats, compost or straw (some gardeners grow their plants through black polythene). This impenetrable layer will prevent weeds from growing and competing with the plants. We prefer the bed mats made from Mypex. It will also keep the soil moist so you won’t have to water the plants as often, and prevent soil splashing on the fruit. Strawberries are the most popular soft fruit for growing at home.
Planting considerations. When preparing pots for planting strawberries, use soil less composts or those with a low loam content, as these weigh less and make heavy containers such as large terracotta strawberry pots more portable. Strawberries like well-drained soil that is rich in humus, so dig in lots of compost or manure. They prefer to be planted in full sun, and sheltered from the wind.

I thought I would give this variety a chance. I don't know much more about the potential cropping property than the description above. Very good supplied plants with an enormous root system for runners.

Great root systems. Looking forward to picking some nice berries.
