Strawberries like well-draining, moist, sandy soil with plenty of organic matter. Dig in a broadcast fertilizer prior to planting. Strawberries should be mulched, although it’s not absolutely necessary. Black 1-1 ½ mil (0.025 to 0.04 mm.) plastic is ideal but straw or other organic material may be used.
Be sure you are buying certified, disease-free plants and be ready to plant immediately. If for some reason you cannot set the strawberries right away, you can keep them wrapped in a refrigerator for a couple of days or “heel them in” singly into a V-shaped trench for a few hours.
