How will the Strawberry, Strawberry Nutrition System help in crop care?

It's no secret that good harvests of strawberries please us for the first 3-4 years, and remontant strawberries even less - only 2-3. And then the culture needs to be updated and transplanted to a new place. In this case, it is necessary to take into account the crop rotation, because not all crops will leave behind a soil suitable for growing strawberries. This circumstance is difficult for some gardeners, especially owners of small plots.

The company "Buyskie Fertilizers" offers a "Nutrition System for Strawberries (Strawberries)" which will not only provide plants with food, but will also help to extend the period of growing crops in one place. The kit contains all the necessary fertilizers and is designed for the full growing season - from planting in the ground to preparing for winter.

All nutrients in the preparations are in an easily accessible form and are maximally absorbed by plants. The optimal ratio of nutrients does not allow the accumulation of nitrates in fruits, increases frost resistance and plant resistance to disease.

Strawberry mustache breeding rules

Strawberries can be planted in both spring and fall. When planting in spring, a lot of effort will be spent on removing whiskers and flowers, which must be removed, since the sockets should take root well in the first year. Fruiting will interfere with the normal development of plants, and in the future they will not give a good harvest. When planted in autumn, in August-September, the strawberries will have time to take root well and will delight them with berries the next year.

Planting material - young rosettes - gardeners, as a rule, buy in the market, in nurseries or grow on their own, sometimes even from seeds. It is advisable to buy seedlings with a closed root system - in pots or containers. Such a strawberry will not notice the transplant, it will take root perfectly and prepare for the winter.

If you want to propagate strawberries that are already growing in your garden, then first you need to choose the best bushes. During fruiting, mark the rosettes with the most delicious and beautiful berries with pegs or a bright garter. Yield is also of great importance - not all bushes give a lot of fruits, therefore, for reproduction, you need to choose strawberries not only sweet, but also abundantly fruiting.

On the marked bushes for the next year, you need to remove all berries and leave on one plant several of the strongest whiskers and, in turn, no more than two outlets on each of them. Berries in the year of rooting from the mother plant must be removed so that its strength is not spent on fruiting, but only on reproduction. In this case, the mustache will be stronger.

To root the mustache, around the mother bush, you need to weed out all the weeds, add a little nutritious soil, scatter the "OMU for strawberries, strawberries" granules and loosen the soil. We lay out the mustache on the prepared ground, leaving no more than two sockets on each. To make the mustache take root faster, they are pressed with metal pins. By the end of summer, the rosettes will take root and build up a sufficient root system, and in August they can already be planted in a permanent place.

Planting garden strawberries

Strawberries need a sunny location for good fruiting. Despite the fact that the culture loves moisture, there should be no stagnation of water at the planting sites. Fertile soil with an acidity of 5.5 to 6.5 is ideal for normal growth and fruiting. Soil fertility is largely determined by crop rotation. And so that the planted outlets receive all the necessary nutrition from the soil, it is important to take this point into account. The best precursors to strawberries are onions, garlic, herbs, legumes, and root vegetables.

To prepare the beds for planting, the soil is dug onto the bayonet of a shovel, simultaneously removing the roots of the weeds. The holes are dug according to the scheme: 20 cm from each other and 60-70 cm between the rows. When planting in the holes, you can apply a complex organic fertilizer "OMU for strawberries, strawberries", which includes low-lying peat, humic acids and a complex of macro- and microelements.

The prolonged action of the fertilizer will allow the plants to root easily and stimulate their further growth. "OMU for strawberries, strawberries" in the amount of 20-30 g is poured onto the bottom of the hole, avoiding contact with the roots. The rosettes are placed in the holes so that the roots do not bend to the side or upwards, and the "heart" is at the level of the soil.

After planting, the strawberries are well watered and the holes are mulched. The first time after planting, it is necessary to protect the plants from the sun by covering the strawberries with agrofibre.

Feeding for strawberries

Strawberry nutrition begins in spring and the "WMD for strawberries, strawberries" will also serve as an ideal fertilizer for this period.

In the spring, after all the old leaves have been removed from the bushes, this is quite easy to do. Important - the drug must be sealed into the soil by loosening and watered if the soil is not sufficiently moist.

When new leaves begin to grow on the outlets, "Aquarin Strawberry", a water-soluble complex mineral fertilizer, is used for feeding in the form of irrigation. Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (in a ratio of 20: 5: 10) and a full set of necessary elements that are included in the fertilizer will ensure the healthy development of the bushes and increase the resistance of plants to diseases and adverse weather conditions.
