How To Plant Strawberry Plants For Large Juicy Berries

Learn how to plant strawberry plants. I’m planting the Sequoia variety because they will produce large juicy strawberries. I recommend planting as early as you can get bare root plants in order to give them plenty of time to establish a good root system to maximize your yield the following Spring.

“Timema poppensis perfectly camouflaged on its host, Redwood Sequoia sempervirens, California. This and other, closely related, species are adapted to live on very different host plants and at different elevations. These ecological specialisations have triggered the splitting into distinct species. How this ecological speciation is promoted, for example by divergent camouflage, can be studied by comparing species of Timema stick insects. Analysis of their DNA also reveals which regions in the genome play important roles in ecological speciation. The results of this research will advance our understanding of how biodiversity forms generally.”

    Is this your first time ordering from Farmer Seed? I searched and the first review site I found had A LOT of negatives. Now I understand, most people that have a good experience don’t post, and folks that have a bad experience almost always want to tell the world. I’m glad you make the videos of product review to help spread the good news. But have you had good luck with Farmer Seed in the past?

    Isn’t copper bad for plant roots?

  6. LDSPrepper 2017-12-27 at 2:52 PM - Reply

    Great question. Copper is actually a necessary trace element plants need. However, if you are concerned simply paint the inside and outside of the wood. It’ll make it last 20+ years.

    The PVC is very inexpensive to make and works great. It has 3 small holes every 4" down the pipe. It is on a timer and currently runs for 2 minutes 2x a day. In colder weather I have it run only 1 minute a day. For more information on the irrigation system view my Mittleider Gardening Method playlist. There is a lot of info there.

    If you were to plant in August here, they would be dead within a few months and would not make it through the winter,

    Correct. That is how treated wood is done now a days.

    Thanks, great info, as usual. Checking out Farmerseeddotcom, who doesn’t like strawberries? I’m thinking of a particular little girl about navel high whose grandmommy buys her some nearly every week. I’ve got a great idea, and I got it, Right Here! Cheers.

    Nice setup!

  15. LDSPrepper 2017-12-27 at 3:12 PM - Reply

    I buy my seeds where ever I find the varieties and prices I like. I have not been involved in any seed exchanges other than giving seeds away.

    I already spend too much time watching You Tube and then I had to find your channel. I have to watch all of your videos! I’ve found things I never thought about trying before (like the beekeeping). Really great information and easy explanations!

    I’m glad I was able to help. I have found everything grows well in this soil mix. The mixture comes from the Mittleider gardening method. Please view my playlist on that to learn more.

    Thanks for the link to where to get the strawberries. I got really frustrated this spring when Gurneys shipped my strawberries for what they thought was best, and I got them in late April, well into/past our strawberry prime time. Not to discredit them any, but I wish I could just say "SHIP NOW" when I ordered in February and they could have. I called Farmer Seed to confirm shipping and they said 3 week turnaround. That’s still faster than Gurney’s fall shipping. Thanks again!

    What kind of wood is the saw dust made of?

  24. Grape Powa 2017-12-27 at 3:28 PM - Reply

    hey there! nice video. I planted my on strawberry plant in june and now its got a bunch of runners and pretty much multiple into ten plants. I just wanted to ask where you get your saw dust and sand and what to look out for when I do buy them.

  25. LDSPrepper 2017-12-27 at 3:29 PM - Reply

    I buy my sawdust from Tomball forest products. They call it wood shavings. It comes in a bag for $3.50. You can also get sawdust at feed stores. You can also use compressed wood pellets instead. Just get them wet and they will expand. I bought my course sand locally too from Nature’s way resources in Conroe Texas.

    Use the link below my video to contact the people on the website and ask them. They can help. I planted my plants in 75/25 sawdust/course sand. As I do all my plants. For more info on this and the inexpensive fertilizer you mix yourself see my Mittleider Gardening Method playlist.

    Can I still plant these in Zone 8, Central Texas?

    Hi, can I use coconut fiber instead of saw dust? Thanks.

  29. LDSPrepper 2017-12-27 at 3:37 PM - Reply

    Excellent. I placed my order and got my plants in two weeks. I’m guessing you will too.

    helps to soak the roots before planting 1 hour, half hour.

    Never mind, I just re-watched the video where you said it was your first time. Sorry.
