Tips & tricks: These varieties are compact and produce many small fruit, making them particularly suited to growing in pots. Use good quality compost and pots that are at least 30cm deep. Water regularly, and cover the surface of the soil with a layer of mulch such as woodchips or hay to hold moisture in.

You can add homemade fertiliser or worm castings from your wormenbak throughout the year to keep them well fed.
