Fall Planted Fruits
Fall is an ideal time to plant fruit plants. Plants will establish strong root systems and get a jump on spring growth.

Growing Strawberries
Soft succulent strawberries are difficult to find store bought. The answer is to grow your own. See how easy it is.

  • 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, Toscana is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful pink flowers They pink flowers make this plant a lovely addition to your deck or garden. I'm surprised by the other review that said the plants were not cold resistant. I live in MN, zone 4, and two years in a row I've transferred the plants from my container to the garden and both years they came back. They are a nice addition to my landscaping, beautiful and tasty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I put mine in a hanging basket on my balcony in San Diego and within the first week it already has grown and has a beautiful pink bloom on it. I'm excited for it to fill in!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not cold resistant I bought this because it was cold resistant, I am in zone 6 and this was supposed to be good for zone 4-9. I even covered it and they didn't come back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Gorgeous This is by far my favorite strawberry plant. I have 2 Toscana plants in a hanging coco basket in partial shade and they've had large, beautiful hot pink flowers all year round here in SoCal. The fruit is medium sized and tastes pretty tart. I get to enjoy 2-3 berries a week on average from 2 plants (more in summer, less in winter). The plants have sent out only 3 runners in the year I've had them so they are easy to manage in containers.
