Strawberries


Lucybelle added on January 29, 2017 | Answered

I planted strawberries in a raised bed a couple of years ago. The plants are big and healthy, but there aren't very many berries, and the berries that are there are small, more the size of blueberries! Any thoughts on what my problem is and what can be done to fix it? Thanks for your help!!

A few things to look at are light levels, soil fertility, watering, climate, and pests. Make sure your plants aren't receiving too much nitrogen fertilizer during flowering and fruiting, which can inhibit fruit production, and make sure they have enough phosphorus, which is needed for fruit production.
