Strawberry plants are still gathering strength for the next year until the beginning of October. Therefore, they should still be supplied with nutrients in time.
In September, once again loosen the soil around the strawberries. The best way to do this is with a spade or digging fork, which is poked into the ground and gently moved back and forth. It is important not to dig up the soil so as not to disturb the soil life. While doing this, also remove any weeds and work in about 5 liters of compost and about 60 g of horn shavings per square meter. Special organic berry fertilizers or chloride-free complete fertilizers are also available in stores. Carefully work the fertilizer into the top layer of soil and then water vigorously.
Strawberries prefer a rather acidic soil, so you should avoid lime. Instead, a mulch layer of about 5 cm high shredded garden cuttings is better.
