★ Ranking of the best strawberry varieties for the Moscow region

Today there are so many strawberry varieties for cultivation in the Moscow region that it is impossible to list them all. Each of them is unique in its own way, regardless of whether it is bred in Russia or abroad. Despite this, experienced breeders advise to choose those that have recommended themselves in the best way and do not require additional investments for their cultivation - neither physical nor financial.

Gardener's mistakes when growing strawberries

If the variety does not fit the climate, the fruits will ripen poorly.

What not to do:

  • Plant bushes with lots of foliage. When planting, it is necessary to remove all leaves except the two youngest. Otherwise, the extra foliage can dry the saplings and weaken them.
  • Do not prune roots. They should be shortened to 10 cm. Then the roots of seedlings when planting can be freely distributed over the planting pit.
  • Before landing, do not make a "bath". Saplings before planting must be cleaned of pests and diseases. To do this, they need for 5-10 minutes to immerse in hot water (45-50 degrees).
  • Feed organic strawberries. The introduction of mullein or manure leads to the rapid growth of whiskers and leaves and prevents full fruiting.
  • Plant adult bushes. The rooted sockets of the current year are most suitable for planting, as the old bushes do not bear fruit well.
  • Every 3-4 years to lay a new plantation. The beds are best exploited every 2-3 years.
  • Do not spud strawberry bushes. Heaped bushes give large berries and bear fruit better.

Tip # 2. Chemical treatments are necessary and do not harm the plants if they are sprayed before flowering and harvest, but they will help in the fight against pests.

Category "Question-Answer"

Question number 1. Why do not strawberries bear fruit?

One of the reasons for the variety you have chosen is not enough time for the formation of flowers and fruits. Such a variety is only taking root, growing foliage. Therefore, it is worth waiting for the next year. Another reason is fertilizers with a large amount of nitrogen: the green mass grows and the plants begin to fatten. In this case, the strawberry will not bloom. A third reason may be that they sold you a weed variety of strawberries.

Question number 2. Is it possible to plant strawberries near a walnut?

Strawberries should be planted 3-4 meters from the nut. If you plant it directly under the nut, then you need to fertilize the soil, which is poor here, besides, this tree gives a lot of shade. In addition, the rain with the leaves of the nut is washed off on the soil of a substance that inhibits and destroys everything that grows under it.
