GENERAL INFORMATION

  • The garden strawberry is a widely grown hybrid species of the genus Fragaria, collectively known as the strawberries, which are cultivated worldwide for their fruit.
  • The fruit is widely appreciated for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweetness.
  • Homegrown strawberries are far more flavorful than what you’ll ever find in a grocery store.
  • Why? The sugar in berries converts to starch soon after it’s picked.
  • The good news is that strawberries are relatively easy to grow if you keep them in a location that gets full sun.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Compost is another key to growing a strawberry patch that produces big, sweet berries.
  • Make sure that the soil has been fully amended with good compost and composted manure.
  • Make sure it has good drainage.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Use a commercial 10-10-10 food or, if you are growing organically, any of a number of organic fertilizers will do.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • The number one tip on how to grow strawberries is that they need sun.
  • Make sure that the spot you choose for your strawberry plants get plenty of full sun.
  • Many strawberries produce their blossoms in the early spring.
  • Making sure that they are in a sunny spot will help keep late frosts from killing off those blossoms.
  • Plus, the more sun strawberry plants get, the bigger and better the strawberries they produce.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Moisture is incredibly important due to shallow roots.
  • Water adequately, about one inch per week.
  • Strawberry plants need a lot of water when the runners and flowers are developing and again in the fall when the plants are mature.
