Strawberries are perennial plants. Each year, they will die back in the winter and start growing again in the spring when the soil warms up...
You can choose to grow June bearing strawberries, everbearing strawberries, or day neutral strawberries. Or all three kinds!
THREE TYPES OF STRAWBERRIES...
SEEDS OR BARE-ROOT PLANTS?
It’s possible to purchase strawberry seeds, however, you will have to work rather hard to turn them into plans. The easy way is to purchase bare root strawberry plants.
Early spring is the best time to plant strawberries but it’s also possible to plant them in the fall. If you live in warmer climates.
WHERE TO PLANT STRAWBERRIES
A raised bed or a raised row will work the best. Soil pH should be 6.5 – 6.8, just like for most vegetables.
HOW TO SPACE STRAWBERRIES...
Make sure to space plants 12-18 inches apart. If you plant in rows, the rows have to be 3-4 feet apart.
Set the plant into the soil with the roots straight down. Make sure the middle of the crown is level with the top of the soil.
