Essential spring feeding for strawberries


After a long winter, strawberries, like many plants, need care and good feeding. To begin with, after the snow and after the soil has completely dried out, the strawberry bushes must be freed from old and dry leaves, and the soil around each bush must be loosened.

Spring feeding of strawberries is a very important and significant factor for further development and fruiting. It must be in the right time frame and in the exact quantity.

The very first spring feeding of strawberries is carried out immediately after winter and for this you need to dilute 1 tablespoon of ammonium sulfate in 10 liters of water, and preferably 2 cups of mullein, which will be a mushy state. Each bush is poured with this solution in a liter jar. Further, before flowering, strawberries also need to be fertilized, for this you need to dilute about 2 tablespoons of nitrophoska in 10 liters of water, as well as 1 teaspoon of potassium sulfate. With this solution, spill each bush in a half liter jar.

And the last and most important stage in the spring feeding of strawberries is its fertilization after collecting all giving birth. To do this, take 10 liters of water, add 2 tablespoons of nitrophoska there, and preferably 1 glass of wood ash. Then all this is mixed well and then each strawberry bush is poured with this solution, 1 liter jar for each. This is the final dressing that strawberries need to set flower buds of the bush for next year's harvest.
