Strawberry Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Prefer a soil rich in all the basic nutrients. Susceptible to root rot and must be planted in well-drained soil, with crown set at soil level.
Do not plant them where tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, or okra were planted the previous year. There is a disease that sometimes attacks these plants that will also attack strawberries. When planting, make sure that the roots are spread apart, and not tightly packed in a small hole. The plant will spread faster if the blossoms are removed so that more runners can be produced. The second year, allow the buds to stay so that fruit can be produced. Because strawberries have shallow roots, they should be fertilized during the growing season.

Interesting Notes:

Not widely grown commercially as it does not ship well. Plant both June bearers and everbearers for a constant supply of fresh fruit. June Bearing strawberries produce a large, concentrated crop in late spring. You'll get more berries per season from June bearing strawberries, and the entire crop will ripen over a three week period. Ever Bearing strawberries produce one crop in spring and another in fall. The fruit must be harvested at frequent intervals during periods of hot weather.
