Culture
• Strawberries require fertile, well-drained soil, high in organic matter, with an optimum soil pH of 5.5-6.5
• Prepare beds by deeply digging in a 1 inch layer of compost and 5 pounds of bone meal for 100 square feet
• Plant in raised beds, and cover with plastic or straw mulch to prevent fruit contact with soil, which can cause rot
• Keep beds evenly moist, use drip irrigation if possible, avoid wetting fruit; plants need 1-1.5 inches of water per week during the growing season
• Plant 12-15 inches apart in all directions
• Pinch off runners to keep plants productive
June bearing: Produce berries over a 2-3 week period in early summer
Everbearing: Produce berries consistently from late spring through fall

Planting
• Plant in 4 inch pots and hold for a few weeks if soil is not ready when you receive plants
• Dig in 1/4 cup complete fertilizer per plant
• Pinch off blossoms of everbearing varieties until July 1st
• Pinch off blossoms of June bearing varieties the entire first year

This is the first year I planted these - I pulled off the first flowers, and have had lots of strawberries all summer long. I can't believe I picked some this morning, and there are more out there that aren't ripe - this is the 10th of November!
Stop already!

These are the best strawberries we have ever planted. However, we are still harvesting in September! Enough already!!! We had to give them away to friends due to the abundance of berries! You should print a warning to customers before they order Seascape, LOL!
