6 Simple Steps to Grow Your Own Strawberries
Posted on December 01 2015
- Buy organic and non-GMO seeds/plants from your local nursery or online.
- The best time to plant strawberry seed/plant is as soon as the ground can worked in the spring.
- Strawberries are sprawling plants. Seedings will send out runners, or "daughter" plants, which in turn will send out their own runners.
- 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 aport and 40 inches between rows). Note: If you are planting strawberry plants make sure the roots are covered but the crown is at the soil top.
- Desirable pH level for strawberries is between 5.5 and 7. 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.
- For the best results make sure to use our specially formulated Greenway Biotech, Inc. strawberry fertilizer.
A few tips to have the perfect strawberries:
- If you are planting strawberry plants make sure the roots are not longer than 8 inches
- Make sure to plant your seed/plant where it gets between 6-10 hours of sunlight a day
- Loamy soil is the most suitable for strawberries
- Planting site must be well-drained. Raised beds are a particularly good option for strawberries.
