Description for Strawberry

They are one of the most productive plants when what is produced from the weight of the plant is considered. The leaves are compound, typically with three leaflets, and usually hairy. The flowers, generally white, rarely reddish, are borne in small clusters on slender stalks. Botanically, the bright colored strawberry fruit is considered an accessory fruit and is not a true berry. Strawberries begin to ripen four to five weeks after the first flowers open and continue to ripen for about three weeks. Propagation is possible by runners.

  • 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.
