Platinum Performers® ‘Sequoia’ strawberry plant is a dormant plant selected by DeGroot, offering you the opportunity to get a head start to the season! Due to its dormant state, this plant may lack foliage until planted. There is no need to wait until after frost; this may be planted as soon as the ground is workable. Once planted, apply 6 inches of mulch for root protection. This early planting prevents transplant shock and allows it more time to develop its root system. If your plant does have foliage, protect it from frost. Depending on the climate and weather experienced after planting, this plant could take up to 4-6 weeks to break dormancy and show signs of growth.
‘Sequoia’ is a hybrid cultivar. It has a small crown that produces runners that extend to establish roots and a new plant. These runners should be removed and the first flush of flowers so plants can direct energy into establishing a strong root system.
