Disappointing

The plants were well packaged and healthy when they arrived. I had ordered them as part of a project that I was completing with my class of Y3 primary pupils. We planted them in the school garden and they were well tended by enthusiastic, budding gardeners. Sadly no fruit was produced.

Hasn't grown any fruit

Hi I've had this plant for over a year and unfortunately it hasn't produced any fruit. I'm sure it's my fault and I haven't done something right! If anyone has any tips please share! However, it is a beautiful plant with lovely white flowers!

does it self-polinate?

Hello there For the a good crop of pineberries it is best to have a normal strawberry plant nearby for pollination purposes. Hope this helps.

I bought white dream plants from you,planted as instructed one in greenhouse and two outside. They have all grown very strong plants but no fruit,just3 tiny pink lumps pretending to be fruit! They have all dozens of trailing stalks (with roots) a few of which I have potted up. Would these take the strength from the plants and stop them fruiting ? They all look very healthy otherwise

Hello, It is quite possible that the plants are concentrating their energies on producing leafy growth rather than fruit - particularly if you are using a fertiliser that is rich in nitrogen. If you want to push them into fruit production, then you should be feeding them with a high potash fertiliser such as Tomorite.

Which plants need cloching?

Frost tender plants can be encouraged to grow far more quickly under cloches and one group of plants, the cucurbits, benefit from the extra warmth overnight. This allows them to photosynthesise for longer and squash, courgette and outdoor cucumber plants
