Add fresh potting compost to your pot and plant your strawberry plant (Fragaria x ananassa) at the right depth. Planting distance is approx. 20 cm. Fill the pot and press it all firmly in. Water immediately and stand the pot in full sun.
Planting strawberries in the garden Planting your strawberries (Fragaria x ananassa) in the garden? Strawberries are usually planted in rows - slightly further apart compared to in pots. Loosen the soil with a fork and improve poor, sandy soil with some well-rotted manure. They like a humus rich soil that is not too dry, but it must also not be too wet, especially in the winter. Clay soil needs some sand added and some well-rotted manure too. A slightly raised bed can be covered in black plastic and the strawberry plants are then planted through that. This helps prevent strawberry rot.
These strawberries don't need crop rotation and they will grow anywhere.
If not planted over black plastic, layer some straw under and around your strawberry plants. The foliage of the strawberry plants looks unsightly a few weeks after harvesting, it's then time to cut it all back, leaving only young growth coming through. Remove suckers too.
These plants usually remain in the same spot two years in a row. Then we recommend creating a new bed in a different place with young plants. Strawberries also grow well in pots and planters, but you need to store them in a cool frost-free area for the winter. Harvesting strawberries Strawberries (Fragaria x ananassa) come in 2 groups:
- Those that fruit once only. These have a limited harvest period, from June into July... mostly July.
- Perpetuals. These varieties will fruit from June into October.
Strawberries are tastiest if allowed to ripen on the plant, so the idea is to pick them regularly. The fruits don't last very long so eat them or use them in jams etc, a.s.a.p. after picking.
Birds will certainly eat them all if you don't protect them. Consider covering with hoops and netting to keep them off.
Strawberries are full of calcium, phosphorus and Vitamins B and C.
