feeding strawberries

Karl Byrne asked 14 years ago

I recently purchased some strawberries and have since repotted them in to soil which has some fertiliser and worm castings to it. Should I1. Feed them before they start to flower in the summer or will they be ok without any feeding2. If they do need to be fed, how often should i feed them3. Should i use dry fertilizer or liquid Fertiliser. I recently aquired some liquid bat guano and was wondering if this would be suitable for strawberries.

Strawberries are best grown in the open soil, well-drained, in a sunny spot. But are okay in pots if you have no soil.

In pots, they would need to be kept nicely moist, never standing in water in a tray. Feed with a liquid feed every three weeks or so from April to September.
