Soil Amendments
Note: You could adjust your soil pH using Greenway Biotech, Inc. Sulfur Powder to lower the pH level or Greenway Biotech, Inc. Dolomite Lime to raise the pH level.
4. Plant the seed/plant in deep and far apart. Leave enough room between each seed/plant for the entire roots system. (At least 20 inches apart and 40 inches between rows).

Note: If you are planting strawberry starters, make sure the roots are covered but the crown is at the soil's surface.
5.  Water in plants thoroughly. If planting seeds, provide enough water without uncovering the seeds beneath the soil.
