Twenty Mule Team Borax kills creeping Charlie
Q: I planted strawberries three years ago. I'm not sure it was a good idea, but I allowed the spring crop to mature. Would fertilizing now to help the summer and fall crop be a good idea? Thank you!
A: Fertilizing after the fruit is borne is always a good idea. However, don't overdo the nitrogen. In other words, don't throw any leftover turf fertilizer on the strawberries. A 5-10-10 or 5-10-5 will do a nice job of reinvigorating the strawberry plants.
