How To Plant Everbearing Strawberries: Which ever way you decide to plant your Strawberries, they have the same basic needs: well-drained soil that is full of organic matter and at least six hours of sun each day, plus about an inch of water each week.
Strawberries do best when planted early in the spring or fall but not so early that the ground is muddy. Squeeze a handful of soil, then flick the resulting clod with your finger. If it breaks apart like chocolate cake, your soil is ready. If the clump stays together, wait a few days and try again. When the soil is ready, prepare it by mixing in a 3-inch layer of compost, digging it into the top foot of soil. Dig in 10-10-10 fertilizer at the rate of 1 pound per 100 square feet. If you're going to plant the berry plants in urns or other containers, fill the containers and then moisten the soil and plant.
