HOW MANY YEARS CAN STRAWBERRIES BE GROWN IN THE SAME PLACE?

On average, strawberries🍓 should not be grown in the same spot for more than 2 to 3 years. Extending beyond this period is not advisable as several factors come into play:

Soil conditions🌱 – Strawberries tend to thrive longer in lighter, but fertile, humus-rich, and well-drained soils than in cold, heavy, and waterlogged ones.

Variety – Some varieties are more resistant to soil nematodes and root system diseases (e.g., the old, reliable (Senga Sengana) than others. The less resistant ones usually become unsuitable for cultivation after 3 years (sometimes even after 2 years) and are only good “for plowing under”. More resistant varieties can bear fruit in the same spot for 4 years, and sometimes even 5 years.🧐

Weed infestation level – In plots that are poorly prepared, i.e., heavily overgrown with couch grass and other troublesome weeds, it’s not worth the effort. It’s better, for example, after 2 years, to eliminate such a cultivation and plant new strawberries in another, better-prepared location.😊
