Push flowers/fruit on strawberry

Posted by queenskitchen 7 nyc (My Page) on

I get a nice crop initially then don't get much for the rest of the year, maybe just here and there. My initial crop just finished and there isn't a single flower right now for 15 or so plants. I have everbearing strawberries (seascape i think). What is the best way to get them to push more flowers? They are in flower boxes if that makes a difference. I have been using foliage pro about once a week or two. I have cut most of the runners off as well.

Everbearing doesn't really mean constantly bearing. It means successive flushes of fruit, maybe two more after the June crop, or maybe just a fall crop.

If Foliage Pro is a high-nitrogen formula, it won't help grow new flowers, though, only healthy new strawberry leaves. You want something like a 10-10-10.

I just looked and It is 9-3-6 with micronutrients.
