  • Choose a location with loose, well-drained soil containing plenty of organic matter.
  • Strawberries may also be planted in containers or pyramid gardens, as an edging for flower and shrub borders or in matted beds and rows.
  • To grow in rows, space strawberry plants 18-24 inches apart in rows 3-5 feet apart. Runners will form new plants and eventually form a solid bed.

Planting Bare Root Plants:

  • Soak roots in lukewarm water two hours before planting.
  • Trim roots to 3 inches long and pick off any blossoms or dead leaves.
  • Using a trowel, open a hole large enough to spread roots out without bunching roots.
  • Set plants in the hole so that the crown is level with the surrounding soil line.
  • Press soil firmly against roots.
  • Water frequently until plants are growing vigorously.

Planting Potted Plants:

  • Make sure the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  • Carefully unpot the plant.
  • Set plants so the crown is level with the surround soil line.
  • Back fill the hole with soil and press soil firmly against the root ball.
  • Water frequently until plants are growing vigorously.
  • Apply a light mulch to keep weeds down, conserve moisture and keep fruit clean.
  • After harvest, remove old foliage. Be careful not to injure the crowns.
  • Fertilize beds in early summer and again in September with a balanced fertilizer. Do not fertilize if plants are flowering.
  • Watering is very important in early summer and September. 
  • Note that June-bearing plants produce the second year after planting. Cut all runners off during the first year, leave 2-3 runners the second year.
  • Winter protection for all strawberry varieties is important in most northern areas. Apply a mulch of straw or other loose organic matter 2-3 inches deep over the plants after the ground freezes but before the temperature drops below 20 degrees F. In spring, pull the mulch back into the rows.
  • Pick the fruit as it ripens, when fully red.
  • Pick with a short piece of stalk attached.
  • Regular picking will help keep the plants fruiting.
  • Fruits are best eaten straight off the plants, and may be kept for up to a week in the refrigerator if kept dry. They are also easily frozen, or made into preserves.

Strawberry, Chandler is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Long keeper, poor flavor This is the typical CA strawberry stand variety. It was bred to get color quickly, but you'll notice right away that the flavor is that of an under-ripe berry. It ships well and we get it here in UT for our various city festivals because it holds up well for the several days that the festival takes place. Also, it is practically the only strawberry variety that can be found in supermarkets. Not recommended for home gardens unless you prefer color over flavor.
