1. Keep The Bed Nice And Clean

You might spot annoying weeds growing around your plants and stealing their nutrients. This is why keeping the bed nice and clean is crucial for getting plenty of delicious berries.

2. Add Some Mulch

Adding mulch to your plants has lots of benefits. For instance, mulch can prevent weed growth and aid with moisture retention. In addition, it can also protect the plant from rotting and disease.

3. Pinch Those Runners

They will end up stealing the nutrients that your plant needs in order to produce the best berries. This is why you should check the plant daily during the growing season and cut the runners.

4. Give Strawberries Some Nitrogen

The best time to add nitrogen-rich fertilizer would be in the beginning of the growing season in spring, and also after harvest in fall.

5. Pruning Is Crucial

The best time to prune strawberry plants is in late summer. This is also the time when you should give them that nitrogen boost.

6. Water Carefully

Generally speaking, they require about 1 to 1.5 inches of rain in a week. This is not applicable during drought periods.

7. Find The Perfect Location

Strawberries grow best in well-draining, fertile soil that’s between pH 5.5 and 6.5.
