Sequoia Strawberries (Everbearing)

Anonymous added on June 29, 2012 | Answered

Last summer I planted a handful of Sequoia plants in a 4 by 8 foot garden bed. I am located in the Chicagoland area. My bed probably gets between 4 and 6 hours of sun each day. The plants have sent out runners and have become fairly dense. The leaves are a lush green. I had a pretty good harvest (May/June) this summer. It is early July right now and there are no signs of any additional blooms. Is there something I should be doing to maintain the strawberry bed?

The plants depleted the phosphorus in the soil, which helps with flowering and fruiting. Bone meal is a good organic ammendment to fix this. You can also use a high phosphorus fertilizer (typically sold as a "bloom booster" fertilizer).
