Methods of strawberry cultivation

1, suitable basin soil

For strawberry cultivation, choose a porous ceramic basin or purple sand basin, and use loose and porous sandy soil for planting. You can mix peat and fine sand in equal amounts, taking care not to use clay, which can cause strawberries to fail.

2. The light temperature is appropriate for strawberry

Strawberries should be exposed to about 5 hours of sunlight every day during cultivation, so that they can blossom and bear fruits better, and the growth temperature of strawberries should be kept at about 15 ~ 22℃. In summer, when the temperature is high, do shade water cooling work.

Generally in the cultivation of strawberries, do not overmuch watering. Water it once a day to keep the soil mois.Fertilizer should also be applied once every half a month or so during the growth stage. It is important to mix the nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to make the strawberry grow better.


Tips for raising strawberries

(1) Replace the basin soil

We should note that the soil is replaced every 2 years. Remove strawberries from the soil, trim old diseased roots, and plant in new loose soil.

(2) Pruning cuttings

Strawberries have great vitality. In order to make the plant grow more luxuriant, stolons can be trimmed. Then cut the branches directly into the soil cuttings.
