Still Early in the Game

Bought 3 plants in the fall, all overwintered well (7b) and I have eaten 1 fruit. Incredibly tasty, but I certainly hope for more in the future.
They survived the first winter
Mark LaPierre from VA wrote (March 17, 2015):
Mine came in the fall, not in the spring at planting time, so I planted them in a large container on my back deck. They survived the winter with hardly any time to get established before the cold came.
Strawberry Germination Information

Strawberry Seed Germination How to Sow Strawberry:
  • Best sown indoors at alternating temperatures of 55 and 72° or at steady temperature of 68-72°
  • Sow with NO cover as light aids in germination and expect germination in 20-30 days
  • Seeds can also be sown outdoors in late fall or early spring
  • When sowing seed outdoors, we recommend a maximum planting depth of 4X the width of the seed

How to Grow Strawberry:
Transplanting: Transplant when there are at least two sets of true leaves, being careful with the roots as they resent being disturbed

Spacing: Space single crop Strawberries 21/2 inches apart in rows spaced 3 feet apart. Space everbearing Strawberries 12 inches apart in rows spaced 2 feet apart

Lighting: Site in full sun

Soil: Site in fertile, sandy, rich, well-drained soil. Fertilize in the spring, keep plants well watered, and mulch them to conserve moisture and keep the fruit from resting directly on the soil (this will help prevent them from rotting)

Additional Care: Remove the flowers in the first year to promote vigorous growth

Appearance and Use:

Grown for the 1/2- 1 inch, white flowers, the bright red, edible fruit, and the handsome, trifoliate leaves. This small, perennial plant spreads by runners, thus creating more plants. Harvest the fruit when it is still pink or after it has turned bright red. “June bearing” varieties produce fruit only once a year in the spring. “Everbearing” varieties produce in the spring and then again in late summer through fall. The everbearing varieties are often runnerless. F. vesca, Woodland Strawberry, bears 1/2 inch fruit. F. ananassa, the popular garden strawberry, is a cross between F. chiloensis and F. virginiana. It is commonly grown from bareroot plants

How many years before fruiting plants bear their first crop?

For fruiting plants such as blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, fig, honeyberry, cranberry, and grape, it takes 2 years to bear the first crop. That does not mean you may not get some fruit before then. Depending on the size and maturity of the plant shipped, you may get at least a few pieces of fruit or a small quantity produced the first year. But, by the second year, you should have your first real crop of fruit to enjoy and fruit production will increase every year thereafter.
