Will I get strawberries my first year?
No.You may pick a few but you will not get a full crop until the following year after planting.
I always was taught to pick off the blossoms of first year plants to make sure the plants will be strong and vigorous. Letting them set fruit the first year was supposed to weaken them.
I agree with Tabitha. First year it's best to pinch off the blooms so your strawberry plants can put all their energy into growing. Next year you'll be rewarded with more strawberries from big healthy plants!
if you plant everbearing you may get a fall crop the first year but should pick the blossoms into the summer.
