The Earliglow Strawberry is a long-term favorite with home growers and for good reason. Producing heavy yields of bright-red and medium-sized delicious fruits, Earliglow is one of the earliest varieties to crop. Being an early-season strawberry, this plant will start delivering harvestable fruits as early as June. Best eaten fresh, its strawberries are also suitable for freezing.
Earliglow Strawberry Plant Care
As with all strawberry plants, this cultivar prefers to be grown in moist and fertile soil that is free draining. To encourage flower and fruit production, this strawberry is best planted in full sun. Growing to approximately 12 to 18 inches wide, the Earliglow Strawberry should be spaced 18 to 24 inches apart to help prevent disease. Suitable for planting in spring or fall, it is a vigorous strawberry and produces good runners that can be used to grow new plants.
Growing Earliglow Strawberry Plant
With its strong growth, the Earliglow Strawberry Plant can produce harvestable fruits in its first season, but only as long as its growing requirements are met. Needing full sun and a fertile soil, this plant will do well whether planted in the ground, raised bed or in a hanging basket. Growing to 6-8 inches high by 12-18 inches wide, as tempting as it may be, it is important not to overplant as this can encourage disease.
When grown in a planter or hanging basket, a minimum size of 8 to 10 inches in diameter is recommended to accommodate its root system. Container-grown strawberry plants need to be watered more frequently than those grown directly in the ground to prevent the soil from drying out.
Watering Earliglow Strawberry Plant
Depending on the conditions, a weekly watering is usually considered the minimum to keep the soil moist. A layer of mulch applied in spring can help conserve moisture and prevent weeds from growing.
Feeding Earliglow Strawberry Plant
To get the best fruits, strawberries need a rich and fertile soil and benefit from being fed during the growing season. As a June-bearing strawberry, fertilizing is best performed after the plant has fruited.
