Strawberry plants dying back?

Strawberry plants dying back?

Post  itsablondething on 8/3/2010, 9:19 am

I planted strawberry plants fairly late this spring/summer.

Many of them have died back so there is no foliage, including my everbearers (I planted some june bearning and some every bearing) despite careful watering and mulching.

Our summer was abnormally hot, so I don't know if this has anything to do with it.

Is this normal? Will the plants come back next summer?

I don't think this is normal, but I am no expert. This is my first year growing them too! I'm in Upper South region/Zone 6b and planted my ever-bearing strawberries (bare root plants) in mid April. They grew fast and I chose not to clip off the first bloom. They have about tripled in size and some are sending out runners. They are just now blooming for the second time and we've been eating the berries for about a week now.

Can you tell us more about where you planted yours? Are they in a regular SFG box or a pyramid? What kind are you growing? Can you post a picture or two?


Day of planting (mid April):


1 month old and blooming:


Today (August 3):



We've had record high temps too, but other than needing watered more often, it seemed to me they enjoyed the heat! My ever-bearings are called Tribute which I got from Burpee. As you can see, I am
growing them in containers (in Mel's Mix). I don't know if that made a
difference, but it does keep the slugs out!
