When you need to transplant strawberry

The most suitable period for strawberry and strawberry transplants is early autumn, as the ground becomes wet in September. The mud must be prepared in advance. Strawberry bushes with a well-developed root system are left on seedling.

Preparation of the mud. Prepare 2-3 days before planting bushes. This site is dug up and fertilizer is introduced. One square metre of earth will need a bucket of compost or overbite. In addition, the soil can be planted with wood ash, peat or chicken litter. After that, the ground is once again dug up and leveled. Don’t forget to make a markup for future fells.

Typically, strawberries are transplanted every 3-4 years. This is due to the features of this type of berry. After the first year of planting, strawberries do not yield a crop. In the second and third year it is time to pick berries. And after the fourth year, yields fall. After that, the old site should be redug, and strawberry bushes replanted at a new site.

Planting strawberries. If you want to harvest after transplanting next year, you’ll need two year old strawberry bushes. In doing so, it should have a well-developed root system and three to five leaflets. Bushes dig out directly on the day of the transplant. After that, they should be soaked with warm water, wrapped in fabric and wrapped with plastic film. That way you protect the roots. Before planting, the film and fabric are neatly removed.

When planting bushes, the spines are neatly spread over the hole. Note that the upper kidney is not planted too deeply. After that, the bush is soaked with the earth, pressing down the seedling, and watered a little.

Good if next to the strawberries you plant marigold, garlic, beans, beans or peas. They have a positive effect on the development of the root system. Have a good harvest!
