Growing tips

To grow strawberries in the garden, you can either plant purchased seedlings or take cuttings from existing plants. These are formed on long shoots, called stolons. Best planting time is July/August, so the plant has enough time to become strong for a good harvest the following year. Propagation by seeds is also possible, they are located on the outside of the so-called gathering nut fruit. During the growth and in dry weather (especially during fruiting) the strawberries need a lot of water. From May you can spread straw as a mulch between the plants, as a protection against moisture and gray mold infestation and against weeds.
