  • 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, Jewel is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXTREMELY Satisfied! I had just received an order of these strawberry jewel bare roots. I was extremely surprised at how fresh this batch was the moment I opened it. The bag had condensation, which is the first indication of fresh roots that had recently been packed in. I unwrapped them and counted exactly 25, and every single one had green growth on their crowns!! Which undoubtedly shows they are viable. I am very pleased with them. With my previous experience with another brand name of Eversweet strawberry bare roots, the entire batch I bought from that store (of which I will not name because it could of been a mistake, or my fault for buying them late into spring) had a dry bag of very dead-looking roots. It being my first time, I still gave them a try, and 5 out of 20 of those roots revived and reproduced which had miraculously paid for itself by the second year, which it has now barred fruit with absolutely no problems of disease. However, I'm glad I chose to try a new variety of bare roots. My expectations are set high for this batch shipped in straight by Burpee. Hoping these Jewel strawberries are hardy enough to survive my southern location of zone 8. I can't wait to see these babies grow! :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from question is it better to plant strawberries in fall or spring?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Almost all the plants died. Very disappointed. I've planted strawberries before and never had any problems. These plants were not very hardy. Even though I planted them late this season, I kept them out of the full sun for several days to get used to the very warm temperatures we experienced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! I bought these last year and planted in mid spring. I have read that they do well in Iowa. I picked off all of the blossoms from the first year as I have read to do. I did not cut off most of the runners and many more plants quickly grew throughout last summer. I have a soaker hose running in my bed so it had generous water throughout the summer. I added leaf mulch for the winter. This year we have had a tremendous harvest! It started right at the end of May and we are picking so many berries every day! By far most have been great berries and the plants look pretty healthy! I covered my bed with bird nets as soon as the berries started turning yellow-pink. The berries have great taste and most have been moderately sized! My plants finally stopped flowering about a week ago. I have eaten a lot, frozen a bunch, and am giving them away by the bowl to my neighbors. It least in the second year of these plant's lives, they have done great! I look forward to having many more crops over the next years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic flavor, large berries Received bareroot in April 2012, planted right away. Prepped new bed (sandy loam) with equal parts blood meal, bone meal, and kelp. Plants seemed to really take off and were a foot high May1st. Applied dried chicken manure between rows and mulched with straw. Let the plants flower, but cut off runners. Fruit first week of June, plentiful berries (50 plants, producing 2 quarts a day) were about .75 to 1.5 ounces each. Should continue producing for about another week. Fantastic strawberry flavor, good texture. Want to make jam, but can't stop eating them fresh. They say the second year is better, can't wait. Oh, by the way...I had to cover them with bird netting, and had to apply iron phosphate to stop the snails/slugs, I also used neem oil, potassium bicarbonate, and dish soap as a fungicide, insecticide. But, they are worth it.
