Watch as Better Homes and Gardens gives you planting tips on how to grow strawberries! When growing strawberries, plant them where they will get full sun and moist, but well-drained soil. Mix in a lot of compost, especially if you have heavy clay or soil that doesn’t drain well. After planting strawberries, spread a layer of mulch over the ground. Give your strawberry plants room to spread. There are two main categories of strawberry plants — June bearing and Everbearing. June bearing strawberries produce most of their fruit in one big crop in June. Everbearing strawberries spread their crop throughout the entire summer. It’s recommended to remove strawberry flowers the year you plant them. Keep these planting tips in mind when growing strawberries in your home garden!
