Hi Tonz

Strawberries can be / are frustrating to grow

When I was at Wanilla they grew like weeds , seems they need the right micro climate , here I have found a spot in the garden where they do well so have set up a raised bed and so far they are looking great .

couple of links that I have used to help me over the yrs.

Every plant in the soil or gravel beds gets a handful of rock dust under it this covers most mineral requirements

Often in my aquaponics they will show some signs of deficiency , but it could be salt , it could be slugs , im a sucker for punishment ive just put a few in to try again

Ive really only had one season in the aquaponics where they looked really healthy
