WHAT TO DO FOR STRAWBERRY IN AUTUMN?
Tell us, please, what should summer residents do in the fall so that next year strawberries are large and healthy? Galina Nikolaevna, Leningrad Region
At this time, I advise you to clean the old leaf blades, you can cut out all the mustaches that have already formed.
In general, it is enough for the plant to leave for wintering with 5-6 leaf blades, so if there is any suspicion that the leaflets are sick, you can cut everything out, leaving only the indicated number of the most healthy and well-developed ones.
Tear off the leaves should not be desirable to cut them with scissors or a sharp secateurs. Simultaneously with the removal of old and diseased leaves, weeds can be removed - if the soil is moist, it is best to do it manually.
Be sure to collect and burn all the leaves that have been removed beyond the territory of the site.
Inspect the bushes - frail, sick time to replace with new ones.
Further, it is desirable to treat the plants from pests and diseases. Against the tick, you can make a couple of treatments with an interval of a week, you need to use acaricides - “Akarin”, “Fitoverm”, “Actellik”, “Fufanon”.
From a variety of fungal diseases, plants can be treated with copper chloride. You need to dilute a tablespoon of the substance in a bucket of water, and then spray the plants, wetting them well.
If in the current season the plants were affected by fungal diseases, then it is advisable to treat them with fungicides, for example, the drug Nitrafen.
You can fertilize the plants. It’s best to use humus,
a couple of kilograms per square meter is quite enough, fine, if you can close it into the soil to a depth of a couple of centimeters.
If the soil on your site is poor, then I recommend adding potassium sulfate per teaspoon per square meter. It would be nice to add wood ash at 150 g per square meter.
Do not forget about watering, if it is dry and warm, then once a week it is advisable to pour a bucket of water at room temperature per square meter.
With the first frosts, it’s time to start shelter, a “breathing” lutrasil, spunbond will do, you can use brushwood, straw (but then provide poison from mice), as well as a spruce lapnik that gently holds snow.
