So far the other 48 are alive and kicking. I planted them in a large planter- 4 each, 10 inches apart around the perimeter. In the middle, I planted one borage seed for every 4 plants as borage helps protect strawberries against diseases. Then in between each strawberry plant, I planted either red onions, or chives, as they are companion plants, and they prevent the berries from growing mold. In the garden, I planted the berries behind a row of chives, and/or garlic or onions.
I will keep you posted on their progress, and I am hopeful that we will get berries this year. I also purchased some bird netting to cover them with as I heard that you can lose 1/3 of your strawberries to the bird if you do not protect them. I still haven't figured out how I will add the netting around them.
Update- June 10th- I did cut off the initial flower buds 4 weeks ago as they say if you do, your berries will be bigger the next year. After being gone on vacation for a week, we finally got our first strawberry- and it was really sweet. Planting one borage in between 6 plants has helped keep the plants healthy, and bug free. I did have to trim the borage as it is really prickly and can get out of control.
These plants are very hardy. I actually planted them in a side yard, and then transplanted them to planter boxes so I could protect them easily from the birds. All of the plants survived during the transplant.
I did lose about 5 plants but I think it was due to not enough water in my planter box. But once we added more water tubes to my boxes, then plants grew bigger.
UPDATE 10/23/2012. As anticipated these strawberry plants gave us strawberries in October. I am excited about the prospect of having strawberries again in April as well. The plants were doing so well, they started producing runners- babies. I put small little planters and used a paper clip to hold down the root so it would take in the tiny little planters. Then one week later I cut the connection with scissors, and the baby plants survived.
I planted 4 strawberry plants at my friends house and she planted them in a circular 20 gallon planter, and the plants are also producing strawberries like crazy. Again just recently the plants produced runners, and last week I was able to give a different friend 8 baby strawberry transplant plants. The strawberry plants are starting to over take my garden- but that is fine with us since the rest of my garden was having some bad luck.
In addition, I planted marigolds next to them to deter the bad bugs away from the strawberry. I do think it would be better off to plant the strawberries in planters off the ground so you can keep the strawberries off the ground, and you can pick them before they go bad on you. Also planting in a planter allows you to always have the perfect soil for them to thrive.
I am thrilled that because of the growth of the strawberries that we will have strawberries for many years. The best part is my two year old and 5 year old just walk out and pick strawberries. We rinse them off, and enjoy them while sitting in the backyard.
UPDATED 10/24/2013: a few of the baredoots died before a successful transplant, however I have several daughters (off-shoots) that made up for the loss bareroots. Also, I can't tell you how many full sized strawberries I have enjoyed this first year. The strawberried were big, sweet, and juicy.
UPDATE 6/13/2016: As promised, I've changed my rating as 10 of the 25 roots are showing new growth in the past 48 hours. None of the plants planted outdoors show new growth, only the hydroponics have. It's a freakin miracle they're still alive because half. of the roots were washed away as a huge black slime ball while soaking. The stems were all mush and had to be cleaned so there was nothing to begin with. I'm holding out hope for the outdoor strawberries.
The ones that survived started to flower within a month, and then produced very small fruits. Then the leaves started to brown and die. I took some of the plants to the Agriculture Extension Service, they run some tests on them and told me these were infected with some bacterial disease. I have kept some of the plants alive spraying copper fungicide on them regularly, but this is not my idea of a good variety to have in my backyard garden. We will not buy that variety again.
