We started an entire Tower Garden unit dedicated to growing strawberries hydroponically in order to meet the needs for the strawberries (low pH and changes to nitrogen during the growing process). For starting the growing process we are using a the nutrient solution with Master Blend (N-P-K = 4 -18- 38) mixed with calcium nitrate ( 15.5-0-0), and magnesium sulfate and although most plants do fine with the 6.0 pH we usually run strawberries lower between pH 5.5 to 6.0. According to the research we have been reading (take a look at our blog for links and more information) strawberries need more nitrogen during the non-fruiting period then nitrogen should be decreased during the fruiting stage to prevent the plants from producing too much green vegetation. If you have experience or suggestions please feel free to let us know, we had some limited success with strawberries mixed in with our other systems (VGS, Tower, Barrels, in the past) but think we can get a better yield if we focus an entire system to just the strawberries. Please feel free to comment or contact us.

    I have always trimmed the roots back by half before planting. It causes them to split creating a greater finer root mass.

    Nice system. I live in Tampa gets hot down here in the summer have about 2 months of cold.. You can put wheels on them. role them in side a shade or inside the house in the middle of the day and out during the cool part. Also, nice to have wheels on them to role them in during the winter months when it is cold

    Hi,

    Very nice your system.

    How is the irrigation time you are applying? 

    Congrats for your great work. =)
