- Strawberries require 6-10 hours a day of direct sunlight.
- They will do best in a sandy loam soil and adding some aged manure and/or compost before planting is recommended. Mulch with chopped straw, leaves or shredded wood.
- The soil pH should be between 5.5 and 7.
- Strawberries need well-drained conditions so raised beds or containers are a good option.
