Q.Sequoia Strawberries

Zone North Hills, Ca 91343 10a | Houshang Motazedi added on March 24, 2023 | Answered

Hello! I live in Los Angeles and have a raised bed measuring 4\’ x 10\’. I want to plant as many Sequoia strawberry plants as possible in this raised bed to get the maximum yield since we have a large family. I read the instructions on \”Gardening Know How\”, but unfortunately, they were not quite clear to me. I would greatly appreciate it if you could answer my question. Also, if you could provide a hand-sketched diagram showing the sample distance between the \”center of one plant to the center of the adjacent plant on the row,\” it would be highly appreciated.

Unfortunately, we cannot provide written instructions or drawings. Fortunately, strawberries are VERY forgiving with planting. You will find that spacing them about 18 inches apart, no matter the setting, will suffice. They fill out their area VERY quickly. I think that within a few months you will have ht issue of needing to thin your bed in order for it to produce, rather than the need for the bed to fill out.

These plants are very fast growers, and are not particular at all. They are similar to most strawberries, in that they will become a nuisance if left unchecked.

In fact, I will often place strawberry plants in random spots that refuse to fill out with anything else because I KNOW that they will fill that spot.
