Q.What PH Do Fragaria Stawberries Perfer

Zone 34983 | Anonymous added on April 14, 2024 | Answered

I purchased Fragsria strawberries from Park seeds catalog 2 weeks ago and my strawberries are doing off one by one. I live in Florida,zone 10a. So I have very poor sand and I made my own soil from local sand soil, compost and worm casting. See first picture. I was hoping to fine what pH strawberries perfer. I test the soil I made and the pH tested at slightly acidic, second picture. The other tests are as follows: nitrogen, high; phosphorous, very low to none; potash, very low. I used HoldAll soil testing kit. Also, I used Gurney’s strawberry food 4-3-4 when I planted them.
