Growing strawberries can be a rewarding experience for any gardener. Whether you are a seasoned pro or a beginner, there are always tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your strawberry plants.

At the beginning of the growing season, it’s important to fertilize your strawberry plants to give them the nutrients they need to grow strong and healthy. We recommend using a balanced fertilizer with equal amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, some like 10-10-10 fertilizers could be a great start at the beginning of the growing season. You can either use a slow-release granular fertilizer or a liquid fertilizer that you apply every two weeks.

When applying fertilizer, be sure to follow the instructions on the package carefully. Over-fertilizing can lead to excessive vegetative growth and reduced fruit production. We recommend applying strawberry fertilizer in the morning or evening when the temperature is cooler to prevent burning the plants.
