We plant our strawberries every year in October. They grow until the weather gets cold, so in November or December they enter a dormant phase. In what used to be a typical year :), when we start having some warmer days in January and February, the plants will begin to bloom. The plant can stand Georgia’s coldest temperatures but the blooms and berries cannot. A ripe, red, strawberry is ready to pick 30 days after the bloom. So if we get freezing temperatures after we have blooms, and we want to protect them, we have to frost protect! I found some old pictures of our frost protection to share with you guys to show you how we prevent the frost from settling on the blooms/berries. Sometimes we’ve used both methods at the same time, but we have row covers and/or above ground sprinklers to promote warmth and prevent frost damage.
