Before planting the strawberries, you should dig over the soil. Also, do not forget to put the root balls into a water bath. Finally the plants can be put into the soil at a distance of about 30 cm to each other. The distance from row to row should be about 60 cm.
The planting hole should be deep enough so that the roots will find plenty of space. However, the central bud, the ""heart"" of the plant, should rise above the ground. After planting, press the top layer of the soil firmly and water well. During the initial phase the soil must not dry out completely.
To protect the plants in winter from frosts, you can mulch the soil with some straw. When the strawberries start to blossom, you can renew the straw so you have clean and dry fruits at harvest time.
