Homegrown strawberry plants are another great edible ground cover, for fresh eating or preserves. Burnt Ridge Nursery has selected our choice of strawberries varieties for sale that are more reliable in the Pacific Northwest and for similar zones. Train runners to produce new daughter plants or trim them for more fruit production on a single strawberry plant. Plants should continually to be watered during the peak of summer heat, even when they stop producing, for Everbearers to produce again later in the season and to assist June Bearers to make it to the next year. They also will need an acidic soil pH of 5.8-6.2 to be productive. Our strawberry plants are typically sold bare root in bundles of 25 and it is best to soak the roots in water before planting.
We offer the Everbearing varieties Albion and Seascape. They will produce two or three crops throughout the growing season. However, they will stop producing during the peak of summer heat and after frost.
Our June Bearing selection is particularly focused on growing in the Pacific Northwest but will do well in similar zones or climates. The varieties Hood, Rainier, Shuksan, Mary's Peak and Totem produce larger fruits and yields during a single period in the growing season. This period may last 2-3 weeks. They may also spread aggressively in the garden if not controlled, runner training is possible or raised beds/barriers can be used.
