Everbearing strawberry plants produce two crops, one in the summer and one in the fall, whereas the standard, or June-bearing, strawberry plant produces only one. Everbearing strawberry plants produce a smaller yield with smaller berries than the standard plant. The additional late-season harvest, however, makes growing them worthwhile for many gardeners.
Add 2 to 3 cubic yards of well-rotted manure to the soil prior to planting the everbearing strawberry plant. Plow it into the soil so that it is well-mixed.
Apply 12 ounces of 16-16-16 fertilizer for each 10-foot row of everbearing strawberry plants. Break this amount into three applications: two weeks after planting the strawberries, one month later and one month after that.
Sprinkle the fertilizer over the soil around the everbearing strawberry plants, in a band that is 1 inch wider than the row.
Brush any fertilizer granules from the foliage.
Water the everbearing strawberries as you normally do. This will help activate the fertilizer.
