Ken Crowther has returned to Wilkin & Sons at Tiptree where he met Farm Manager Andrey Ivanov on the fruit farm in the new growing area. The state of the art poly tunnel is currently being used to grow this season’s strawberries using a revolutionary new system which is the first in the UK.


Nothing tastes better than strawberries grown in your own garden.  They are one of the first food plants you will see in the garden centre.  They are easy to grow, and having a small garden or even no garden need not be barrier as strawberries can be grown in containers and hanging baskets.   Anita Dent from Bayer Garden is a huge fan of the home grown variety.
