Strawberry Plants .org Library

strawberry plants libraryWelcome to the Strawberry Plants .org Library page!  This page is designed to be a central hub that collects a vast body of materials related to strawberry plants, strawberries, and all things related.  With the voluminous amount of gardening information and other information on the internet today, it can be a real headache trying to wade through the links to find the knowledge you are seeking about strawberry plants or strawberries.

The purpose of this page is to make it easy to find what you are looking for when it comes to the specifics about strawberries and the strawberry plants that grow them.  Even tangentially related resources will be included as long as they are unique and beneficial.  So, if you come across a strawberry resource not listed below, feel free to submit it to us!

Remember, libraries serve tremendously valuable functions as storehouses and distribution centers for knowledge.  Hopefully this Strawberry Plants Library page will become your go-to source for research on strawberry plants, strawberries, and topics not (yet) covered on Strawberry Plants .org.

How the Strawberry Plants Library Page Works

This main Strawberry Plants Library page serves as a hub and reference directory for everything related to growing strawberry plants, strawberries themselves, strawberry scientific information, cooking with and using strawberries, and much more.

Each entry in the “library” below will contain four lines.  The first will have a number (to help you quickly re-locate a source) followed by an active link.  The link will take you to a summary page from which you can get more information about the reference source and access or download the actual website or file.  The second line gives the major categories that the resource addresses.  The third gives sub-topics that are pertinent, and the fourth gives any special focus of the resource.

The Strawberry Plants Library will, hopefully, continue to grow and become a more comprehensive reference source.  As that happens, it may become harder to quickly find what you are looking for on the page.  To save time, follow these steps:

1.  Press and hold the Ctrl key on your keyboard while viewing this page in your internet browser.

2.  While holding the Ctrl key, press the F key.  This will open your browser’s search function.

3.  Type in the specific category, topic, or phrase you are seeking, then press the Enter key.  The browser will take you directly to the first occurrence.  If that resource doesn’t look to be what you are seeking, simply continue the search (usually by clicking “next”) and move to the next entry in the Strawberry Plants Library that contains your search term.

Strawberry Plant Disease Diagnosis

strawberry plant disease diagnosisFew things are more frustrating for a farmer or gardener than to toil for hours in heat and rain while nurturing his growing plants with tender loving care only to see some infernal sign that a microscopic invader has set up shop among the plants.  After working for hours preparing the earth, planting the plants, and weeding out the uninvited party crashers, it can provoke feelings of desperation, despair, and disillusionment to watch once-healthy plants wilt and die.

The wilting of future dreams and enjoyment as the plants become marred and disfigured with bacterial blemishes and fungal flaws is enough to make a budding gardener hang up the trowel and garden gloves for good.  Be ye irked no longer!  You don’t have to wave the white flag of final surrender if the unseen organisms wage war upon your growing goodies.  In fact, you can identify and slay such scurrilous offenders with a little help from qualified specialists.
