Strawberries are delicious.
Not only do they taste great, but they’re also healthy too – jam packed full of Vitamin C. Those strawberries will taste even better when home grown, and growing your own is easier than you might think.
The Money Matters team at Sainsbury’s Bank have created a fun and simple guide to growing your own strawberries. Don’t have a large garden? No problem. The guide shows you how to create a strawberry window garden – the perfect way to enjoy gardening when you are a little short on space.
With step by step instructions, it’s a great way to get children of all ages involved in gardening and nutrition, encouraging them to get excited about growing and eating their own fruit. A tasty treat for the lunchbox too!
The handy guide will let you know what you need to get started. You’ll want to start planting in June, so it’s a good time to think about getting organised now.
Have fun planting and enjoy your scrummy strawberries.
Tasty tip: Try adding them to your favourite smoothie, pop them in your fruit salad, or just nibble them fresh. For a extra tasty treat, melt some dark chocolate and dip them in!
