General Care For Strawberries

Keep strawberry beds free of weeds at all times. Hand weeding is best, so as not to disturb the roots. Keep plants watered until they are established.

Apply a general fertilizer, at the rate recommended by the manufacturer, either side of the row in midsummer. Strawberries are vulnerable to a number of pests and diseases. If you do not wish to use chemical controls you will need to remain vigilant at all times and clear fading foliage and rotting fruit as soon as they are noticed.
