These Elsanta strawberries were planted on table tops last month just outside York.

The Elsanta strawberry plants are growing in special strawberry bags imported from Ireland.

A water pipe runs alongside the bags.  Water drips into the bags to keep them moist, but liquid fertiliser is added to the water to provide nutrients.

One of the advantages of table top strawberries is that the slugs cannot get to them to cause trouble.  But the deer have realised that another advantage of table top strawberries is that you do not have to bend down to pick them, and the deer like the variety Elsanta!
