    Spring planting of strawberries is recommended for Kentuckiana, as early as March. The key to a good crop is to plant them in the right spot and to choose the right variety … and this is where it can be a little confusing.
    There are several different categories of strawberries including June-bearing, ever-bearing and day-neutral.  
    June-bearing varieties have traditionally been the best tasting and these are the ones that must be pinched in the first year, producing a late spring crop the following year.
