There are multiple methods for growing strawberries in combination with different plant types. Strawberries may be grown in gutters or containers. There are strawberry varieties that are grown for a short period of time, and varieties that require longer, more continual growing. Some strawberry varieties bear fruit almost the whole year round. Each method of growing demands a different, tailored growing medium. BVB Substrates’ strawberry growing media are composed of high quality raw materials. We offer products with great stability, that have the right moisture levels and air content for every grower’s needs.
