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.
Watch video
  • 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Order fulfillment outstanding My shipment arrived on a Friday, right on time for weekend planting. There were more than 25 in the bunch, and all look healthy and strong. I soaked them in lukewarm water for two hours, as suggested, just before planting. I will post an update after they start growing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the Strawberry to Get!!! I bought these strawberries 2 years ago and am extremely impressed. About a week after I planted them, all 25 started growing leaves. I picked off the flowers in the beginning, as suggested, to let the plants establish themselves. Then after either june or July 1 I let them produce and to my surprise on the first year I got a few hand fulls of strawberries all the way until the last frost. Then last year I started getting strawberries late spring and all the way until frost. They are a medium size and the best tasting strawberry i've ever eating. I would recommend these strawberries to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice!! I ordered 25 bare roots and it came with 27. All 27 are alive and well, in fact they have fresh green leaves only 3 days after planting. So far I am very pleased! Hope the fruit is just as impressive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More like Strawberry Bushes than mere plants Wow! These are big plants. Well the majority of them are big as the put a few normal sized plants in with the giants. Very gently packed and arrived fast and fresh. Seriously some of the plants I received are much larger than Blackberry bare roots and some as large as Raspberry bare roots. I feel as if I may need to open a pick your own patch once these start to produce. Thanks guys.
