UMaine Extension recommendations cited in Press Herald’s ‘Maine Gardener’ column

Recommendations from the University of Maine Cooperative Extension were included in the latest column in the Portland Press Herald “Maine Gardener” series. In the article, “What you need to know to grow juicy strawberries in Maine,” the author points to a UMaine Extension bulletin written by David Handley, a specialist of vegetables and small fruits. UMaine Extension states strawberry beds can last three to five years if well maintained, and recommended varieties for Maine include Earliglow, Sparkle, Wendy, Cavendish, Jewel and Allstar, the article states.
