To plant a strawberry patch, you must first hunt down the exact kind that you want
. As there are many different kinds and each does different things. Some bloom and produce all season while others don’t, and some require more water than others but produce more fruit it’s just a matter of deciphering through it all.
Then you must select an area to place your plants. This area should have full sun, well-drained soil, and PLENTY of room to grow. The place should be tilled and weeded of all plants. Fertilizer should then be added to the mix of soil. The plants should be placed 2-3 feet away from each other and be well watered afterward. These plants best fertilizer is cow manure as it is very healthy and not acidic. These plants send “runners” that sprout new plants and can quickly take over an entire area. So this plant must be watched once this plant has taken your patch it will create an almost impenetrable canopy to stop weed growth. The plants will produce fruit in the spring (and with some variations) throughout the summer. These plants need to be fertilized in the spring and late summer. They do not need to be trimmed but must have old dead leaves removed from the plant to prevent suffocation of the new leaves. These plants also need moderate amounts of water that will help the plants grow greatly, and increase fruit amounts.
