Position: full sun Soil: any soil Rate of growth: fast-growing Hardiness: fully hardy Just released onto the market, 'Buddy' is an everbearing strawberry that is being hailed as a breakthrough in breading. This is because all the everbearing strawberries to date have produced a big crop of long-lasting fruits, but often at the expense of the flavour. 'Buddy' has all the benefits associated with the everbearers, but it also has a delicious flavour. It has also shown a good resistance to most common soil borne diseases and although trials are still ongoing, its resistance to powdery mildew is also very promising. Garden care: These strawberry runners are sent out as bare root (ie not potted up or in soil) plants. They are completely dormant, so any remaining foliage or stems will look shrivelled and dry. They should be planted out within a couple of days of arrival. Once they are planted out, they will emerge from their dormancy and start to put on new growth in spring (or within a 4 - 6 weeks if planted in spring). Choose a spot in full sun and prepare the bed well by removing all the weeds and digging in a generous amount of compost. You can also work in some general purpose fertiliser if planting in spring. When you are ready to plant, fill a bucket with tepid water and leave the plants to soak for 20 minutes. This will rehydrate the roots. While they are soaking, prepare the planting holes - these should be approximately twice as wide as the strawberries root system. Plant the strawberries so the crown (the point where the roots meet the stem) is at soil level, and spread the roots out before re-filling with soil. Space them at 45cm intervals, allowing 75cm between each row. After planting, immediately give them a thorough water and apply a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plants, being careful to avoid the crown. Keep the plants well watered, especially during warmer weather and when the fruits are developing. When the strawberries are starting to form, a thick layer of straw

~ Making the strawberry cakes ~
Dominick really enjoyed making the cakes and we found it pretty straight forward. Dominick was able to do most of the baking himself but I helped a little bit and supervised him throughout.
In addition to the ingredients in the box you need a medium sized egg and some cold water.
