  • 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, Albion is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice little strawberry plants I planted 25 bare root plants this spring (some more than once since our squirrels are jerks and would dig them up just to dig them up and leave them laying on the soil), and despite the squirrels they all survived. First blossoms appeared in early June and I dutifully pinched them off until the end of July and then let them have at it. They didn't do much but produce runners in the heat of August (yay free plants!), but once things started cooling down they started producing here and there. It was in no way a bumper crop, but for a first year and having to battle squirrels and chipmunks for the ripe ones I'm pleased thus far. They really went crazy with the runners, from those 25 bare roots I now have 70 some odd plants. If I can figure out how to keep the rodents away, next year should be amazing!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NOT THE BEST RESULTS I bought your plants late in the season and hoped for good results. But i lost half of the plants. The bed had been totally refreshed and we water but some of plants were weak and did make it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from None grew I had them in a paper bed within 2 days of their arrival and none survived. Also planted Evie (got a few) and Seascape (only a couple survived) also from Burpee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy Strawberries We planted after topping the soil with a 3" layer of compost. All 30 plants grew vigorously. We plucked off the flowers throughout the spring to encourage root and runner growth. Near the middle of summer we had a 15' X 4' bed packed with strawberry plants and we stopped plucking the flowers. By the end of summer these plants were exploding with strawberries.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strawberries not so great They arrived as ordered. All that was good. We followed all instructions but over a third of plants never bloomed. The ones that did look real healthy but produce very little fruit and seem to spend all the energy putting out rhizomes. So not sure it's any fault of the plants. I think the climate is just not suitable: I had thought the variety was matched to the climate but that's not the case. We are NorCal coastal: lots of fog.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not grow The roots had sprouted in the mail and were light yellow when I got the package. I planted them but only had 4 that actually had a green leaf come out of the soil surface. Then I had rabbits get in and finish those 4 off...so I took care of the rabbit problem but now am wondering about the roots. Will they sprout next spring? Or do I need to replant some other variety? I also had bought raspberry plants and only had 3 of the 5 roots sprout. Let me know what you think. I am a beginner and don't like to complain but wanted to see what went wrong. Gregg

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My 2 Strawberries were delicous Extremely disappointed with these bare root plants. I spent the extra money for plants vs seeds. Followed all the instructions and watched the video: Soaked roots in lukewarm water two hours before planting, spaced 18-24 inches apart in rows 3-5 feet apart with a fertilizer organic matter blend of soil. The plants took instantly and the green leaves grew to about ankle height. They flowered and produced 2 medium strawberries and 2 tiny ones that fell off before getting any bigger. 25 plants gave me 4 strawberries. They are still growing strong with green leaves today but zero strawberries. This is what I was looking forward to the most out of everything I ordered from Burpee. The taste was definitely good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work I planted these upon arrival, per the instructions; in a strawberry planter, in pots, as well as in the ground. All plants have died, except 1; which produced 1 strawberry.
