Strawberries: A Field Guide

We grow strawberries for their fragrant, beautiful dark green vines as well as for their fruit.

There are hundreds of cultivars of garden strawberries, which were first bred in Brittany in the 18th century, and wild strawberries (Fragaria vesca) are delicious as well. The two main techniques for planting strawberries are in a matted row for June fruit or in hills (for ever-bearing fruit). Whichever you choose, be sure to renovate your patch by clearing away runners, weeding, and spreading new mulch between seasons.
