Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

DescriptionSome plants are edible, others are ornamental, and Berried Treasure® Red everbearing strawberry (or Fragaria ananassa) is both! This delightful perennial bursts with blooms in summer, all of which turn into sweet strawberries. It has a mounded habit that produces runners, perfectly suited for patio containers and hanging baskets. It grows vigorously, yielding fruit in its first season, which means it can be enjoyed as an annual outside of its hardiness zones!
This award-winning perennial from Proven Winners is incredibly low maintenance. It's the perfect plant for kids, who will love to watch it grow and enjoy the fruit. While it grows well in garden beds, we recommend planting it in containers on your patio.DetailsBotanical name: Fragaria ananassa Common name: Ornamental and Edible Everbearing Strawberry Zone: 4-8 Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun) Height x width: 12-16" tall x 18-24" wide Flower color: Pink Foliage color: Green Season of interest: Summer Uses: Container plantings, specimen. How To GrowSoil: Average-rich, moist, well-drained soil. Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Water: Dry to average. Very tolerant of dry conditions once established. Spacing: 20-24 inches Fertilizing: Fertilize in spring as soon as new growth appears. Winterizing: If grown in the garden, we recommend covering the area with mulch. If growing in a container, we recommend bringing the container into an unheated garage to overwinter. Maintenance & pruning: Produces few to no runners like regular strawberries. Best performance when planted in a container, if planting in-ground, we recommend avoiding planting in areas where tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, or okra were planted last season.
Everbearing strawberries' growth starts to fade after 3-4 years. We recommend replacing them once growth slows down or growing them as annuals.
