Tasty and juicy strawberries are not easy to grow. Often, instead of large and sweet fruits, small watery berries grow, which also taste very sour. Of course, the first thing you should pay attention to is the variety: small-fruited strawberries will not get bigger even with frequent watering and fertilizing.

Experts say that growing high-quality strawberries is a real art that is easy to learn. How to grow large fruits and which varieties are better to choose for planting - read the article on OBOZ.UA.

Tip 1: variety

The following varieties give a high-quality crop and large fruits: giantella, giant jornea, chamora turusi, Mount Everest, marmalade, honei, Queen Elizabeth.

Tip 2: drainage

Strawberries should be planted in a well-lit bed with good drainage. Before planting, you can add compost or humus to the soil - these fertilizers will provide the plants with the necessary nutrients.

Tip 3: watering

Strawberries need abundant watering, especially during the fruiting period. However, please note that stagnant moisture will lead to rotting of the roots and berries. It is best to water the bushes in the morning or evening, avoiding getting moisture on the leaves.

Tip 4: fertilize

Mineral fertilizers will help improve yields. Choose fertilizers with a high content of potassium, phosphorus, and nitrogen, especially during periods of active growth and fruiting.

Tip 5: protecting against pests

It is necessary to carefully and regularly check the plants for diseases and treat them in time with appropriate means.

Strawberries need sufficient air circulation, so it is important to periodically thin out the bushes.
