Fall Is the Best Time for Planting Strawberry Plants

fall is the best time for planting strawberry plantsPeople often inquire as to the best time for planting strawberry plants.  Most folks are ready for cooler weather and changing leaves in the fall, and most aren't thinking at all about the shriveled remnants of brittle stalks still remaining in what used to be their productive gardens.  The gardening bug won't bite again until after snow and freezing temperatures have disabused the green thumb of the joys of winter.

So, for those wondering when is the best time to plant strawberries, the answer is simple: September.  By planting in September, you will allow the root systems of your plugs or bare-root plants to establish themselves well before the first fruiting season (in the spring).  Doing this allows you to skip snipping the flowers off of first-year, spring-planted strawberry plants and watch instead as the flowers turn to berries early in the growing season.

Fortunately, there are quite a few suppliers of strawberry plants who offer fall shipping.  So, don't delay.  Order today.  As you might expect, StrawberryPlants.org has a directory of them.  To order strawberry plants for fall planting and 1st-spring harvest, simply see this page (for more details, too): Fall Strawberry Plants.

Fall Strawberry Plants Reminder

fall strawberry plants reminderStrawberry plants are usually considered for new spring gardens in the middle of winter.  Cabin fever has set in, and the barren brown or snowy white landscape evokes fond thoughts of green buds springing up from the ground.  That is when most would-be gardeners start perusing the seed catalogs or surfing the internet wistfully in hopes of concocting the perfect productive plot come warmer weather.

Unfortunately, while strawberries are a universal favorite, the dead of winter is the wrong time to begin considering their cultivation if a first-year crop is what is coveted.  Instead, the previous fall is the time the planning and planting should be done.  And, that time is upon us!

For those green thumbs out there who want to see berry-laden strawberry plants this coming springtime, be preparing your strawberry garden now.  The suppliers of either bare-root strawberry plants or strawberry plugs (or actual potted plants in the case of Burpee) will be queuing up orders for either the end of September, October, or the beginning of November.

To reap a full harvest in a scant few months from now, prepare your ground and order your plants soon.  The list of locations from where you can order your plants is here: Fall Strawberry Plants.  And, if you come late and need help keeping the plants viable, be sure to review how to overwinter strawberries.  Good luck!

Purple Strawberries

purple strawberriesIntroducing the Purple Strawberry

Strawberries are big business.  Really big business.  In fact, the strawberry industry is a multi-billion dollar worldwide business.  And, the market keeps getting bigger and better – just like the strawberries themselves.  Since there is so much money to be made selling one of the world's most delightful and relatively easy to grow fruits, new varieties are constantly being developed, refined, and even engineered by manipulating the genetics of the strawberry plant itself.  While I am not keen on the artificial manipulation of the core genetic structure of any food, much less something already as delightful as strawberries, it is hard to argue that something new seems to always be making headlines regarding strawberries.  Now, the latest in the strawberry color scheme is available for your home garden: purple strawberries!

Say Hello to Mr. Pineberry

say hello to mr pineberry

It's STRAWBERRY ORDERING TIME!  People all over are in full strawberry-buying mode.  Strawberries are the first crop to come in after a long, cold winter.  They are planted as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring, and the following year they burst forth and produce a blessed harvest, often while the nights are still chilly.

This season, why not try something new?  Plan on incorporating the Pineberry into your gardening plans.  If you have even a square foot or two of extra space in your garden plot, consider planting a few pineberry plants.  Pineberries are hybrid strawberries just like the normal strawberries you buy at the store or grow from ordered plants.  The difference can be seen in the photo.

They get their name from their unique pineapple/strawberry taste: PINEapple + strawBERRY = PINEBERRY.

The downside is that they are hard to obtain.  You can buy them commercially at the beginning of April in the UK, but they aren't offered commercially in the United States.  BUT, you CAN grow them yourself, if you act soon.  There is only one supplier of pineberries that is known to us at present.  If you are interested in growing this novel strawberry, click the following link to learn more: Pineberry Pineberries.

Pineberry Seeds for Sale

pineberry seeds for saleI have received several requests from people looking for pineberry seeds for sale.  Over the last year or two, many people have become interested in the “new” strawberry hybrid that has white accessory flesh and bright red seeds.  The introduction of these pineberries into the commercial retail store chain Waitrose in the United Kingdom (albeit on a limited basis) caused a surge of interest.

The unique selling point for pineberries is their unusual flavor.  They have a flavor that is a fusion of traditional strawberry flavor with pineapple overtones.  Hence, the pineapple + strawberry = pineberry.  The pineberry has been billed as a new strawberry variety.  In fact, that is not quite accurate.  While new to the commercial markets, it is actually quite old.  But, as this post deals with why it is so hard to find pineberry seeds for sale, please refer to the longer post that deals with the history and confusion surrounding this cultivar here: Pineberry Pineberries.
