One mistake can ruin your harvest: what you absolutely must not do with strawberries
For a bountiful harvest of strawberries, it is necessary to do the right fertilizing in time. Sometimes, instead of the long-awaited large and juicy strawberries, small, watery berries appear on the beds, and also sour in taste. It is optimal to fertilize three times a year: when the young leaves form, when the flowering period begins, and when the ovary appears.
However, there is one common misconception that can lead to loss of crops. What not to do when growing strawberries - read in the article OBOZREVATEL.
Mulching is a useful procedure for plants. But with strawberries, it must be carried out very carefully. During certain periods, mulching not only will not bring any benefits, but can also cause harm.
Experts do not advise to mulch strawberries during its flowering period. So the soil will warm up worse, and in a moist and cool environment, the root system will not be very comfortable. It will grow and develop worse. Also in the case of mulching during flowering, all the useful vitamins and trace elements will remain on the surface and only a small part will reach the roots.
Mulching strawberries should be done, but only when the ovaries have already appeared.
Previously OBOZREVATEL was told that fertilizer made of green will protect strawberries from diseases. Read in our article how to prepare it properly and when to start treatment.
