How to take care of Strawberry fragaria Ostara x 3
Soak these roots as soon as you receive them. Strawberries will grow in most types of soil as long as there is good drainage. Alternatively, plant them in containers or baskets. Spread out the roots and plant them just below the surface of the soil (not too deep) 30cm apart. Fertilise in the beginning with organic fertiliser and later with liquid fertiliser every 14 days. Newly planted strawberries need to be watered regularly. Protect plants from frost during winter by covering them with straw. Strawberry plants live for approx three years and then they should be replaced for best fruit production.
