June Bearing

IRRIGATION

  • Throughout the growing season, 1" – 2" rainfall or equivalent is necessary per week, depending on soil.

FERTILIZATION

  Establishment year

  • Mix ½ lb of 10–10–10 per 100 sq ft into soil 2 or more weeks prior to planting.
  • Side–dress with ½ lb 10–10–10 in July, August and September.

  Subsequent years

  • Side–dress with 1½ lb 10–10–10 between renovation (see below) and early September.
  • Regularly check the soil pH and amend to keep at the optimum 6.5–6.8.
  • CAUTION: Over–fertilizing is detrimental.

WEED CONTROL

  • Thoroughly remove weeds prior to planting.
  • Weekly cultivation is required. Remember the roots are shallow. Take care not to damage the roots.
  • You may apply a granular herbicide to control weeds before they grow. Check with your local agricultural extension before using chemicals.
  • Proper mulching will aid in weed control.

RENOVATION

  • June–bearing strawberry plants require renovation. After all the berries have been harvested, mow or clip the plants and remove the clippings from the strawberry bed. Do not renovate in the planting year. (Ever–bearing/day–neutral strawberry plants are not renovated.)
  • Be careful not to cut or injure the crowns during this process.
  • Apply 1 lb 10–10–10 per 100 sq ft at time of renovation and ½ lb per 100 sq ft in September.

WINTER PROTECTION

  • Cover plants with 4" of straw (not hay) mulch to protect the crowns. Salt hay is acceptable – do not use leaves.
  • Apply mulch after several significant frosts.
  • Remove mulch in early spring before new growth begins.

Ever-Bearing

Healthy berry plants require these important elements:

Strawberry Planting Tips
  • Early planting! Plant as early as possible in the spring. Snow or occasional frost will not hurt most new plants (green tissue culture plants excepted), and spring rains will foster growth. Planting in the fall is not recommended in the Northeast and Midwest.
  • A sunny, weed-free location with at least a half-day of sunlight.
  • Clean beds that are frequently weeded.
  • Well-drained soil. For poor drainage conditions, consider raised beds.
  • Proper soil pH. Matching soil pH to plant requirements can be a huge factor in your success. Sample the soil before planting and contact your local cooperative extension office for assistance.
  • Crop rotation. Avoid planting strawberries or raspberries in soils where previous crops have included strawberries, raspberries, potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant or peppers. These crops may harbor the soil pathogens Verticillium, Phytophthora and nematodes and may affect your new plants.
  • Irrigation. Maintain proper moisture levels throughout the season and, most importantly, during the establishment period. Drip irrigation is imperative when planting in raised beds.

Avoid Common Mistakes

  • Read free planting guide 1-3 months before planting.
  • Plants will fail to flourish if roots are too deep or too shallow.
  • Pack soil firmly around the roots.
  • Do not plant near wild plants or plants whose origins are unknown.
  • Water well one to three times a week, not every day.
  • Avoid fertilizer burn by fertilizing only after plants are established.
  • Do not soak plants in water more than 1 hour!

Shipping Information

  • Plants orders shipping to CA, OR, WA and HI will be charged a $15.00 fee for phyto-sanitary inspection.
  • From Mid-May on, (depending on seasonal weather) orders shipping to states with a 4 or 5 Day ground transit time from MA will automatically be upgraded to 3DAY expedited shipping so that plants will arrive in optimal condition. This will be reflected in shipping charge.
  • All plants are dormant, bare root, and ship from our Massachusetts nursery.
