- 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.

I got the bare roots on a friday afternoon, since I have 6 weeks to go before they can go out I potted them up in 6 inch rounds . I followed instruction provided with the plants . I placed plants under a 6500k grow light 16 hours on 8 off . By monday I saw an great amount of vigorous growth and just in 3 days . Thank you burpee you can look forward to my continued business .Date published: 2015-04-21Rated 5 out of 5 by mski from Great Bare Roots The roots showed up on time, they were in excellent shape large (had to trim ) and healthy. They all grew it only took 5 days for them to green up . I live in the so called Strawberry capital of the world, cant buy a good berry (white inside) unless I go to one of the few small fields and pay $8 for a 3 pack. Also cannot find good bare roots. Go figure. Will see how they produce.Date published: 2015-03-19Rated 5 out of 5 by GoodOleCountryBoy from Sweet Success My first planting ever of strawberries but have been gardening a LONG time plus hold a Horticultural degree from UCONN. SOOO... I do things by the book the first time around and this is how I planted these berries. I'm in Zone 6A and am able to get into the garden fairly early and prepared my strawberry bed just on time for a late March planting of 50 Seascapes and 50 Mara Du Bois starts. I ordered them in February and they arrived March 27, 2014..... in the ground the following day. I have a garden consisting of a fairly clay based soil so I amended the 6' x 30' berry bed heavily with peat and a few old bags of perlite, threw in some lime and a touch of 10-10-10. Mounded up tall, flat top rows for good drainage and planted. I then loaded the valleys between the rows and up to and around the plants with sawdust.......... a lot of sawdust. Wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow as I have access to all I want. The berries took to their new homes immediately and began to grow in April very well. As per "the book".... I clipped all flowers that arrived until June 1...... less a few here and there. The flowers I left produced nice berries and if I were to do it again, I'd let them bloom out mid May. Besides weeding (and I did a lot of it) a little fertilizer is all I added. By late June I was eating a LOT of BIG, gorgeous picture perfect berries that continued through late July, tapered off a bit and came back in September. I had so many berries, I got sick of them and would invite friends into my patch to eat all they wanted. Seascape is a GREAT plant. Very hardy, great producer with a reasonable runner set which is easy to keep up with. The flavor is excellent and if you put the work into them, you WILL get picture perfect berries. Even the late berries were beautiful and of good size. In the end, I ate berries from the first part of June through the first week of October. What's best, I love the idea you can put out plants this year and eat very well this year too. I have yet to decide if I will let them run this upcoming spring of not, but probably will. As for the Mara Du Bois (if anyone cares)? A very interesting berry to say the least. But they are a small berry and their flavor is....... well....... strange. I would not plant them again. They are finicky, produce MASSIVE runners yet low numbers of berries and I found the work unreasonable for the reward. They are too candy tasting to me. Seascape...... I will positive plant them in the future, although I will be trying some others before doing so. It's a gardener's thing..... I'm sure you understand. Plant these........... and do it early and do it by the book!!! You WILL be rewarded. The photos shows three rows. The left is Mara Do Bois, the center and right Seascape. April 4 after mulching.Date published: 2015-01-21Rated 5 out of 5 by HughGelsman from very nice!! I ordered 25 seascape strawberries 5/06/14. All 25 were beautifully bear root transfered plus they added 2 that made a total of 27 bareroot plants. I got them into the garden which was nothing more than turned up sand and clay mixed with a wheelbarrow full of pinestraw and 3- 40 Ib bags of mushroom compost. The garden is 14ft by 6ft and the plants took up half the space of it. The two extras were verry small and unfotunatly did not make it through the summer, however all of them did emerge including the small extras that were taken by drought. It is now 11/3/14 and the 25 original plants are thriving despite several periods of drought and an infestation of brown caterpillars that absolutely loved both the leaves and berries. The individual berries that i didnt cut off before bloom were verry tiney, alpine size. This is because they were newly planted and i was supposed to cut off all berry growth from the first year. I would like to point out that I let these bad boys run like crazy!! and they did!! they made runners from runners from runners up to the fourth generation! I propagated the original runners which gave me 60+ plants includeing the original. Once the babbies were tucked in, the momas realized that they could let loose and wham!! now there are about 120+ seascapes that have now started to spill over into the other half of garden space. This was partly due to my neglect of putting the original runners into the empty space and detaching them from mother. I will eventually detach from the momma plants and take my original runners out of the 3-4 inch small planters that i have put them in many months ago, and stick them in the ground in the empty side of the strawberry patch. Then i will use the same small planters to propagate the 2nd and 3rd gen of runners while they are still attached to the 1st gen. I will repeat this process and eventually start my own strawberry plant selling opperation in order to pay for the original 25. These plants are literally paying for themselves, i would like to encourage any home gardener that loves to grow these types of plants to do the same. Burpee is top notch!! Happy Gardening and God Bless!Date published: 2014-11-03Rated 5 out of 5 by WillardF from Prolific Day Neutral Burpee was prompt in refunding my price when all but six died. Those six have daughters and many delicious berries. They produced all summer and are still putting out into the cool weather of October, zone 7B. We tore out all of the Ozark Beauty plants and gave them away. These and Triple Crown thornless blackberries are our new favorite berry plants.Date published: 2014-10-22Rated 5 out of 5 by NEbigkatz from Non-stop berries I chose your Seascape strawberry for our high tunnels after reading about the fruit size and the yield. One of the reasons i chose Seascape was the day-neutral light requirement. I wanted berries all summer long to sell at the Farmer's Market. I picked off the blossoms for 6-7 weeks before I let the plants produce berries. Once I let the blossoms stay on the plants they began to produce beautiful, shiny berries that customers couldn't resist. I sold out every time. Seascape berries are sweet, yet have a bit of tartness, with a wonderful flavor. The high tunnel offers a bit of relief from the hot summer sun, and our temps this summer were lower than normal, so these plants haven't stopped producing since they set their first set of berries. This fall I'll reset the rooted runners into new rows for more crop next yearr.Date published: 2014-09-18Rated 5 out of 5 by Skyler from Great Strawberry What a great strawberry plant!! I got my plants and within a 6 weeks had ripe strawberries. My plants were in excellent condition when I got them and I planted them in pots around my home. They are extremely prolific plants in spring and continue to produce still. I got around 3-5 strawberries off each plant the first go around of blossoms. The strawberries were 1-2 ounces and the taste is average on them. I have had sweeter strawberries from friends, however my strawberries produce far more and are still producing. I have about 60 runners coming off the plants and have put pots next to them with soil and have tons of new plants that are close to producing already. Overall this is a great strawberry, and my kids love picking them all summer long and they produce well enough that my kids share them with the neighbors. This was a great purchase for fresh strawberries, they are better than the market...Date published: 2014-07-21
