In August, rows should be 18 to 24 inches wide with plants 6 to 8 inches apart in the row. Generally rows are 36 to 40 inches apart. For day-neutral strawberries (also called everbearing strawberries), plants are set 8 to 12 inches apart in the row with 30 to 36 inches between rows.
Consequently, what is the best spacing for strawberry plants?
The type of strawberry determines plant spacing. June-bearing strawberries should be planted 18 to 24 inches apart in rows spaced 4 feet apart. Runners will develop and root freely to form a matted row about 2 feet wide. Everbearing and day-neutral strawberries are typically planted in beds consisting of 2 or 3 rows.
How much space do you need to plant strawberries?
However, don't plant too deep: The roots should be covered, but the crown should be right at the soil surface. Provide adequate space for sprawling. Set plants out 20 inches apart, and leave 4 feet between rows. Roots shouldn't be longer than 8 inches when plants are set out.
Can you grow strawberries in a raised bed?
The second year you can start harvesting berries. For more information, read Growing Berries in Raised Beds. Strawberries are perennials that need rich soil with lots of organic matter and a slightly acidic pH (between 5.5 and 6.5). Work in compost, rotted manure and some peat moss at planting time.
