In early spring, place the plants 20-30 cm (10-12”) apart. Make each hole large enough to accommodate the roots and place a mound of earth in the center of each hole. The roots should be pressed firmly into the soil around the mound. Fill the hole, making sure the soil only goes halfway up the crown as a buried crown will rot. Water thoroughly after planting. Strawberries require plenty of moisture during their growth season, especially during blooming time through to harvest. If plants are not receiving water from rain, provide your plants with 2.5-5 cm (1-2”) of water per week. Pick strawberries with their stems attached (when berries are ripe). Mulch between plants after planting to keep the soil temperature cool, deter weeds and to keep the fruit off the soil. Straw is a traditional strawberry mulch. Do not use black plastic since it will raise the soil temperature and optimal fruit production requires cool soil. Tips: - Remove runners and flowers until July 1st of the first year. Plants may then be allowed to produce fruit. - Multiple harvests are exhausting on plants and everbearing varieties should be replaced about every 3 years or whenever they seem to slow in vigor. It is recommended to plant a new crop during the second year of production. - Mulching over the strawberry plants in winter will prevent injury to the crowns. Wait until the temperature drops to approx. -5°C and cover with several inches of straw.
