Minimum 10 seeds per packet
- Soil: Use fertile soil that drains well. Aim for a pH level between 5.8 and 6.8.
- Helpful Tools: Using plastic mulch and fabric covers can help your plants start off strong and keep bugs away. But remember to remove these covers when your plants start flowering.
- Fruit Troubles: If your fruit isn’t growing well, it might be because they’re not getting pollinated enough.
- Plant them about 18-24 inches apart, and make sure rows are about 6 feet apart. If you give them more space, you might find it easier to pick the fruits later on.
