Time to Plant Strawberries October 13, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — austinurbangardens @ 3:59 pm

Now is the best time to plant strawberry plants in Austin (in my opinion.)  I prefer the Sequoia variety and just purchased a flat.  As soon as the rain slacks off, I will set out my strawberry plants in one of my raised beds, and mulch heavily around each of the plants.  The mulch helps keep moisture in, helps keep the plants warmer in the winter, and you don’t want your strawberries laying in the dirt.  I’m contemplating using hay, rather than hardwood mulch this time around.
