Mail Order Season begins in mid October 2014. Taking orders now!

For folks who can make the trip to the nursery, we're open year round except for part of July/August and Holidays. Come see us from Wednesday through Sunday, 9:05-5:08PM EST.

For all our local customers (and anyone willing to make the trip & save money!) we have our Pickup at Nursery Price List available.


strawberries

Strawberries are by far the most popular, easiest to grow and most rewarding berry. In our effort to sell the most trouble-free, productive plants, we are now offering the same plants commercial growers buy. These plants will produce 3 to 4 times better than the usual backyard strawberry, yielding up to one quart per plant. For highest production and largest berries, it pays to start with the best.


Edging Groundcover or Hanging Baskets?

Lush strawberry leaves are beautiful borders for walkways or as low growing groundcovers in flower beds and shrubbery borders. Plant strawberries under apples, plums or peaches for beauty and increased production. Patio gardeners can enjoy strawberry barrels, pyramids and hanging baskets.

Strawberry Blooms

Strawberry Varieties (Fragaria spp.)

SWEET CHARLIE This University of Florida developed strawberry lives up to its name by being intensely sweet. Vigorous grower and disease resistant, Sweet Charlie will fruit during the spring and early summer. Fruit is an orange-red. Self-pollinating. Zones 4-8. $2.25 per plug. Available in late October.

CAMAROSA Camarosa is an early short day variety that produces large to very large, firm, deep red fruit. It has great productivity (it's one of the preferred strawberries grown in California) with substantially greater early productivity. Camarosa fruit is larger and firmer than Chandler. Self-pollinating. Zones 4-8. $2.25 per plug. Available in late October.


Annualize

Strawberries in the Deep South are best treated as an annual. Plant them in the fall, enjoy your spring and summer harvest and then till them in and plant some onions or beans in their spot for the rest of the summer garden season.

Prone to disease and nematodes if left in the same area more than a season, strawberries crowd themselves out and produce smaller and smaller berries. So start clean each year with the most virus free plants you can find. The plants we offer are one generation from a tissue cultured mother plant.

Strawberries need lots of moisture when first planted. Plant in well-drained soil in part to full sun, and water regularly.
