Fruit for your planters

 Strawberries can be grown  in all sorts of planters. To enjoy fresh berries  over the longest period, either grow  perpetual fruiting varieties,  which allow you to pick small quantities of  fruit all summer long, or plant early,  mid season and late varieties  separately.  This method allows you  to harvest more  fruit at any one time, but takes up more  space.
The best way to start is to buy pot-grown  strawberry plants in spring: ten strawberry plants are about right for one of our 45cm square planters. Plant them immediately in soil-based compost and they will produce  a modest crop in their first year.  The second  season should  see  a bumper  crop, followed by a slightly  lower yield the third summer.
Then  start again with fresh stock. Careful watering and feeding  are essential.  If you  are to reap a good crop, you must  never let the

compost dry out, particularly when the fruit is forming and ripening; if you do, the bulk of your crop will drop off the bush almost immediately.
Water well then leave the planters for up to three  weeks, until they reach the point of drying out. Be careful not to overwater  them during the winter months. Blackcurrants are especially attractive  to birds and the bushes will need some form of protection. Blueberry

bushes and redcurrant bushes will also thrive for many years in large planters.  And rhubarb is another great, if unexpected,  plant for a planter, with its wonderful architectural foliage. If you have room  in the planter around the fruit bush, you could add almost any decorative  bedding  plants the effect will be spectacular.
Growing Tips
Most soft fruit thrives best in a soil-based compost: John Innes No.2 for strawberries, and John Innes No.3 for red, white, blackcurrants and for gooseberries.  A rhubarb crown needs  a good-sized  planter 60cm square. The stems  can be pulled until early July:  then it should  be allowed to grow unchecked  to build up reserves.
All soft-fruit bushes  need  to be watered copiously  and fed regularly with a liquid tomato fertiliser,  starting  when the fruit begins to form continuing until it is gathered.
