Planting & Care

The Everbearing Strawberry is a hybrid species that is cultivated worldwide for its fruit, the strawberry. The fruit (which is not actually a berry, but an aggregate accessory fruit) is widely appreciated for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweetness. It is consumed in large quantities, either fresh or in prepared foods such as preserves, fruit juice, pies, ice creams, and milkshakes. Artificial strawberry aroma is also widely used in many industrialized food products and in other industries for their scent such as bath and shower gels. Everbearing Strawberry Plants harness this desirability of the fruit and allow for an all year-round yield.

Seasonal information: Early spring is the best time to plant Everbearing Strawberry Plants. Cover the roots with soil, leaving the crown of the plant at the soil’s surface. During the first season, remove all blossoms from June-bearing plants. This will make your Strawberry harvests larger and the plants will send out more runners in subsequent seasons.

Location: Everbearing Strawberry Plants prefer a soil rich in all the basic nutrients, with a pH of 6–6.5. Everbearing Strawberry Plants plants are susceptible to root rot and must be planted in well drained soil, with crown set at soil level.

Planting instructions: Try to plant Everbearing Strawberry Plants on a cloudy day or during the late afternoon.
1) Set the Everbearing Strawberry Plants in the soil so that the soil is just covering the tops of the roots. Do not cover the crown.
2) After four or five weeks, the Everbearing Strawberry Plants will produce runners and new daughter plants.

Watering: When watering your Everbearing Strawberry plants, be sure to water only the roots and not the leaves, as moisture on the leaves encourages growth of fungus. Ensure that the Strawberries are grown in an open area to prevent fungal disease from occurring.

Fertilization: Start with a rich, organic soil. Apply a balanced fertilizer (10-10-10) at planting at the rate of one pound per 100 sq. ft. Fertilize again after renovation of June bearers or second harvest of day neutrals and Everbearing Strawberry plants types. Do not over fertilize or you will have excessive leaf growth and poor flowering. Do not fertilize Everbearing Strawberry Plants late in the season in colder climate to prevent new growth that will be damaged by frost.

Weed Control: In addition to the watering and fertilizing, it is important to keep your Everbearing Strawberry Plant patch weed-free, especially since weeds will steal moisture and nutrients from your shallow-rooted Everbearing Strawberry plants very quickly. Keep your berries harvested, and remove any rotting fruit immediately.

Pests and Disease: Around 200 species of pests are known to attack Everbearing Strawberry plants, both directly and indirectly. These pests include slugs, moths, fruit flies, chafers, Strawberry root weevils, Strawberry thrips, Strawberry sap beetles, Strawberry crown moth, mites, aphids, and others. The Strawberries are subject to damage from gray mold, rhizopus rot, and leather rot. The Everbearing Strawberry Plants can also develop disease from temperature extremes during winter. Birds love your strawberries! protect them with some means of wildlife netting or bird nets.

Pruning: You should regularly prune your Everbearing Strawberry Plants to maintain a healthy grow cycle.

Pollination: Spun-bonded row covers may also be used to speed harvest. Row covers are applied at the time of winter mulch removal and are left in place until flowering begins. This practice can speed harvest by as much as a week. Row covers must be removed at the time of flowering so pollination can occur. Fruits normally mature 28 days after pollination.
