How and When to Plant Strawberries

 

When planning your strawberry patch, it’s important to know that strawberries thrive in full sun so locate a bright sunny spot where they’ll have six or more hours of full sun exposure. Many varieties produce blossoms in early spring that can be killed by a late frost unless there’s plenty of sun on your plants. Most importantly, keep in mind that the amount of sun your plants get will determine the size of the crop and the size of the berries as well. Rich soil with a pH factor of 6 to 6.5 works best for strawberries, so plan on working some organic compost into the soil in your beds or pots. The soil needs to be well-draining. Your plants should be spaced 1 to 1.5 feet (31-46 cm.) apart to allow plenty of room for them to grow and spread. There are three basic types of strawberry plants: June-bearing, spring-bearing (which provides fruit early in the season), and everbearing (which will produce fruit all summer long). There are many varieties within these categories, so consult with your local garden nursery or extension service for the kinds that grow best in your area.
