  • 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, Evie-2 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most prolific strawberries I've ever grown! I am in New England zone 6, For the past twenty years I have grown several varieties. The day neutrals were always a disappointment, but in my quest for all summer long strawberries, I tried these Evie-2. They started producing by the end of the first summer. The second and third summers were spectacular. They don't produce many runners, so now I need to purchase new plants as the old ones did well this past June and then petered out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Somewhat disappointed Put in 25 of these two years ago. Plants are vigorous, lots of red juicy berries. But hardly any taste at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I received these late in the day on 3/27/18 so I had to wait till the next day to plant. I soaked the roots, chopped off till 3 inches long and planted as directed. Not even 3 days later, they were starting to get leaves. Now, almost a week later, they all have green leaves and are doing very well. It is to snow tonight, so will have to cover them, but all in all, very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far Perfect! Received root plants late Tuesday afternoon. Followed enclosed directions to the letter. Planted in strawberry towers Wednesday morning. By Friday morning every plant had sprouted new green leaves. Couldn't be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be Prepared to Share! Honestly the first year I wasn't expecting much from these but they certainly proved me wrong. By the second year I had so many strawberries I didn't know what to do with them. I made jars upon jars of jam, froze a few gallon, and gave away pints and quarts of fresh berries to friends and family. The only Con if it could be considered such is that they shoot out quite a few runners and the bed could easily become over crowded if it isn't kept up with. (Those are also nice to give away to friends and family.) I throw leaves or straw over them before winter and pull it back in the spring and use it as a mulch to trap in moisture and keep the berries out of the dirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Root stock survival increasing over last year My strawberry Rows have expanded by 2 more rows. The previous year's crop has produced several berry sets. I still wide this year's sets even Longer and made sure to trim 1". They survived better than last year's planting - about 60% surviving. I will plant other ba my 3-4 more ties next year and fill in any empty spots from this year. Still love Evies

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent plants! High yield! Beautiful! I bought 25 of these strawberry plants last year in march. I planted them in a planter and kept them indoors until may when I moved them into a raised best with garden soil and peat mix. The first year I cut the runners off and plucked the blossoms off and didn't let any fruit form (you are supposed to do this to get a high yield the second year). I covered the plants with straw in the winter and then removed it this year in April and took the dead leaves off/cleaned up the plants. Early may I started to get tons of blossoms. Ended up harvesting the first week of June and got 53.69 pounds so far. Made lots of strawberry jam. The strawberries taste wonderful and are a medium to small size.
