With the economy struggling and food prices soaring, now may be the best time ever to start growing your own strawberries.
The plant--a low maintenance, high-yield favorite among strawberry lovers--is extremely popular due to its ability to produce well after spring ends. In fact, Everbearing Strawberries are often harvested as late as the first frost! That means that you'll enjoy delicious, juicy strawberries for many months to come.
You'll love the ease of preparation, planting and care of your new plant, because the Everbearing will require very little attention, except when you're pulling off countless plump, red strawberries
Most strawberry varieties come in all at once. Everbearing allows you to enjoy fresh strawberries over several months. Since the harvest is spread out... you need more plants. This is why we are making them so affordable. You will have your own backyard strawberry factory with plenty on hand for breakfast, smoothies, treats and to share.
The value you'll receive from your Everbearing Strawberry plants will continuously replenish your fruit basket--and your wallet! The large and luscious berries you'll grow yourself, not only taste amazing, you'll reap the many commonly known health benefits from eating this vitamin-rich fruit grown right in your own garden--pesticide free, ready to pluck, eat and enjoy.
This versatile plant can be used in just about any location you desire--ground cover, containers, even decks and patios--the Everbearing Strawberry is a plant that will adapt to almost anywhere. So attractive, it can be used in your front yard or back.
You can expect one harvest in the late spring, followed by another in the fall, then a possible third harvest in late fall! And leftover Strawberries can be easily frozen and kept until you are ready to serve.
Fall is an ideal time to plant your Everbearing Strawberries. Planting in fall will give you a well-established root system entering into winter. The roots will continue to grow through the cold months preparing your plants to explode with strawberries in the Spring. In late summer and fall strawberry plants are exhausted from all the energy they put into making fruit. This is the first sign of your plants entering dormancy, which occurs in fall or winter depending on your location. It is actually best to allow the leaves to go dormant and fall off naturally to add nitrogen to your soil to help the plant grow in the coming spring. So, don’t be concerned that your plants may be a bit ugly right now. It’s completely normal and just part of the natural life cycle of the strawberry. The plant’s energy is beginning to focus solely on the roots so they are ready to grow and establish quickly. So, go ahead and get your new Everbearing Strawberry plants in the ground now and you’ll be enjoying fresh-picked strawberries by summer!

Specific Directions for Everbearing Strawberry
Place your Everbearing Strawberry Plants in an area that receives at least six hours of sunlight a day. Everbearing Strawberries can tolerate shade, but prefer full sun. If kept indoors place your Everbearing Strawberry plants by a large sunny window.
Everbearing Strawberries will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Everbearing Strawberries need at least an inch of water a week. Give our plants water at the roots, not over head. Spread a layer of mulch around your planting bed to help your soil retain moisture and to keep weeds away.
Fertilize your Everbearing Strawberry Plants with a well balanced slow release fertilizer in the early Spring and again in the Summer after your first harvest. Everbearing Strawberries bloom in the Spring and late Summer. After they bloom it takes about six weeks for strawberries to grow and mature. Your Strawberries will be ready to be picked when their skin fully turns a vibrant red color.
|Step 1 - Dig Your Hole
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Everbearing Strawberry.
|Step 2 - Place Your Plant
Next, separate the roots of your Everbearing Strawberry gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
|Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
