Good info about strawberries

FERTILIZING STRAWBERRIES: Strawberry plants have a higher relative nitrogen demand in the early spring and late fall. First of all make sure that your strawberry bed is well mulched with compost in the fall. In the early spring the plants are going through a highly energy-demanding period as they produce their strawberries and put out strawberry runners. Even if the runners are removed, nitrogen can run low quite quickly in organic strawberry beds.
To maintain productivity and nitrogen levels, you’ll need to use organic fertilizers. Blood meal is a good option as it has 13% nitrogen. Other organic sources of nitrogen include fish meal, soy meal, and alfalfa meal. Aged manure is also a good source of nitrogen, but you have to be careful to not supply too much nitrogen to your strawberries as that can cause excess vegetative production and fewer berries. Too much nitrogen can kill/burn up strawberries, so do not put raw, fresh chicken manure on strawberries (or any other extremely nitrogen-rich material).

Our Story

The Kamloops Garden Club was formed in 1950, with an ongoing goal of helping people to create beautiful gardens in the area. The club collects and distributes a vast amount of information and tips on all topics relating to growing and maintaining fruit, vegetables, plants and flowers.

Monthly Meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of the month, February through June, and September through November, at 7:00pm in the upper level of Heritage House, 100 Lorne Street, Kamloops. At the monthly meeting we have guest speakers, sharing hints and tips for gardeners, or information about garden related matters. Coffee time gives you an opportunity to enjoy coffee, tea and goodies (no charge), while making new friends who share your passion for gardening. The evening ends with a free raffle for door prizes that members have contributed.

The Rose and Flower Show is an annual event that is held on the 3rd Saturday in June. It’s an opportunity for members and the general public to show off their labor of love. There are 13 different categories so you’re bound to have something in your yard that you could enter. There are ribbons, prizes and trophies that are up for grab s. For more information, go to www.kamloopsgardenclub.com

The Rose and Flower Tea is on the same day as the Rose and Flower Show, form 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Even if you don’t enter the show, you’ll enjoy the beautiful displays while being served tea and goodies.
