|Do you recommend fertilizing strawberries when they are flowering and/or when berries begin to form? If so, what type of fertilizer do you recommend?
|Feed June-bearers strawberries twice a year: very lightly when growth begins and again, more heavily, after fruiting. Everbearing types prefer consistent light feedings. Heavy feeding of either type in spring leads to excessive plant growth, soft fruit, and fruit rot. An all-purpose 5-10-10 or 10-20-20 are good choices for strawberry beds. Follow application directions on the fertilizer bag.|
