Helpful hint from The Garden Geeks: I bet you didn't know these tips for growing strawberries! To avoid some pest and disease problems, never plant strawberry plants where potatoes, tomatoes, or sod were recently grown. Be sure you always plant strawberries in rows so they run in the direction of the prevailing winds in your area, this will help dry out the compact, low lying leaves after rain or other moisture to help avoid fungal problems that are common.
