have patience
The plants look wonderful but sadly I did remove the large strawberry fruit from one of the plants hoping to strengthen the plant for later. The other plant is sending out runners that make me think of more fruit later.

All of the plants arrived DEAD, got a refund. I wish I had a chance to see what would have produced. Not sure about reordering if this is an ongoing problem. The one star rating is just because they did arrive in a timely manner, but out of 25 plants, none survived.

Very sickly plants.
I ordered 3 plants. Two came very wilted, FGT sent relpacements, but they were just as bad. I've planted them and gave them nutients, but they still look wilted. First time plants from FGT are not doing good. Will be patient and see if they recover.

I initially ordered 4 @ 14.99 ea. Upon arrival, all but 1 looked dead. Even the 1 looked in real bad shape. Fortunately it has made a full recovery and is thriving. 2 of the remaining 3 look like they will not recover. The 3rd is showing signs of pushing through. So I would say 2 out of 4 will make it. I would not recommend this item. Howeve, when dealing with Fast Growing Trees, I would recommend that you always purchase the 1-year insurance.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Maxim Strawberry

Maxim Strawberry Planting Diretions

Planting Instructions (in ground): Plant your Maxim Strawberry in a spot that receives full sun and has well-draining soil. Amend the soil with organic matter and place in a small hole as deep and wide as the root ball. Make sure not to bury the crown. If you are planting several plants, use straw or landscaping fabric to cover the ground and prevent weeds, retain moisture, and keep the strawberries from touching the soil.


Planting Instructions (in pot): Plant your Maxim Strawberry in plastic container with holes or porous container lined with plastic. You can also plant your strawberries vertically in a strawberry barrel.  Allow the plant to sit in the sun for at least 6 hours each day.


Watering: Water gently after planting to settle the roots, and then continue to water as needed to prevent the plant from drying out. 


Fertilization: Add a high-nitrogen strawberry fertilizer every Spring to improve growth. 


Pruning: Remove the buds from the first year growth to ensure your plant will fruit in the second year. Once it bears fruit, you no longer need to prune, except to remove yellowed leaves after the growing season.  


Birds: Birds love strawberries, so be sure to use a bird deterring method such as a scarecrow, faux bird of prey statue, reflective items such as old CDs, or airy netting.


Pests: Strawberry plants attract many pests, but there are several methods to prevent and eliminate them. Planting pungent herbs like onions or garlic near your strawberries is an ideal first step. You can also manually remove the pests or simply use an organic pesticide solution.

will maxim strawberries regrow next year?
Jamale z on May 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Any strawberries will grow next couple years. But do not expect a lot from first year. Usually next year they will be more productive than in first year.
Are these perennials?
