  Strawberry Planting Tips

  • Sliced Strawberry
    Best planted in direct sunlight (at least 8 hours a day)
  • Soil PH:5-6.8
  • Spacing: 12-18” in the row, 3’ to 4’ between rows
  • June-bearing strawberry plants bear fruit one year after planting
  • Everbearing/Day-Neutral strawberry plants begin bearing fruit 12-14 weeks after planting depending on conditions
  • Plant as soon as possible in the spring, after the soil has warmed to 50OF
  •  Avoid planting strawberries in soils where potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants, or peppers were grown. (Those crops can spread pathogens to strawberry plants)
  • When mulching, do not use decayed/wet leaves or grass clippings.
  • When plant is in the dormant stage, 4” of clean straw is recommended for mulch
