Description

  • 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.
