Caring for Strawberry
- Clear away dead foliage as this can be susceptible to pests and diseases over winter.
- Strawberry plants need to be left outside for the autumn and winter as they require a chill period to initiate flowering.
- Feed your plants with a balanced fertilizer every two weeks until flowering begins, at which point you should switch to a high-potash liquid fertilizer for the best fruiting.
- Nitrogen fertilizer is needed at the beginning of every planting year.
