phuong-pham: Hi I was wondering how long it took your strawberry plants to start growing fruits? :) I'm growing Some strawberry plants right now and they're pretty small (it's been 4 months). I'd love some advices/tips on growing strawberries:). I absolutely love your garden btw!
It took several months since I’m an apartment gardener. I started in October and those seeds are so tiny when you are coaxing them to grow. So I’m glad yours are already established.
So are they sitting outside or inside?
You definitely want them facing the sun in the morning when it rises. They don’t need any shade as they are heavy fruit producers. If you see any old aged leaves along the underside I usually snip them off.
You will have to add some organic fertilizer every 2 weeks once they get to 4”-6” tall. If they seem small now and does not have much progress then add some now. They might have depleted your soils nourishment.
Also if you can add straw or some kind of mulch barrier from the soil when your fruit grows in it will help them from dragging in the soil and rotting.
And last of all water evenly and consistently. I’ve killed off strawberries because I forgot to water them! Just dig up a little soil to see if it’s moist several inches deep. If it is your are good. If the top is moist and the deeper soil isn’t add water.
