How to Grow & Harvest Strawberries

 

 

When to Plant

Plant your bare root Strawberry plants in early spring once the threat of frost has passed.

How to Plant

Before planting, soak the roots for up to 20 minutes in water. Plant in well drained, rich soil with plenty of organic matter or compost. Gently spread the roots before putting into the soil, and make sure to keep the crown of the plant above the soil level. Add 2-3 inches of mulch around each plant to help keep the soil moist. 

How to Harvest

Fruit should be ready after 4-6 weeks from when the flowering period started. Harvest only deep red, full fleshed fruits. Cut the stem, do not pull the berry by hand. Store any unwashed berries in the fridge for 3-5 days.
