Enjoy Clean, Blemish-Free Berries with
New Strawberry Supports

Strawberry Support

Don’t let a rainy day spoil a crop of just-ripening strawberries. Our easy-to-install, adjustable Strawberry Supports elevate ripening fruit and allow air to circulate. This promotes even ripening and minimizes rot.

Use the supports in place of straw to decrease mold and mildew problems, especially during wet growing seasons. The plastic supports are 11.5″ in diameter, with a 3″ opening in the center. Innovative design makes it easy to install on established plants.

      The runners tend to draw strength from the main plant because they are actually new plants. Most gardeners cut most of them off. It’s difficult to get a big harvest from a basket — it will always be more decorative than productive. For a bigger harvest, grow them in the ground or a raised bed.
