How to grow large and sweet strawberries

For a bountiful strawberry harvest, it's crucial to apply the right fertilizers at the right time. Sometimes, instead of the eagerly awaited large and juicy strawberries, small watery berries appear on the beds, which also taste sour. It is optimal to fertilize three times a year: when young leaves form, during the flowering period, and when the ovary appears.

However, there is one common mistake that can lead to a loss of crops. What not to do when growing strawberries - read in the OBOZREVATEL article.

Mulching is a beneficial procedure for plants. However, with strawberries, it should be done very carefully. In certain periods, mulching will not only fail to bring any benefit but can also cause harm.

One mistake can cost you a harvest: what you absolutely should not do with strawberries

So, experts do not recommend mulching strawberries during the flowering period. This way, the soil will warm up less effectively, and the root system will not feel very comfortable in a humid and cool environment. It will grow and develop worse. Also, if mulching is carried out during flowering, all the beneficial vitamins and minerals will remain on the surface, and only a small part will reach the roots.

It is worth mulching strawberries, but only when the ovaries appear.
