Chumash Farms & their Strawberry Towers

Here are some neat photos from one of our growers down in San Luis Obispo, CA. SWT ANN-CHUMASH SWT ANN TOWER-CHUMASHChumash Farms sent us these photos of some of our Sweet Ann variety strawberry that they have growing in their towers.  Sweet Ann just so happens to be of of Lassen Canyon Nursery's own variety.  The towers are a great way to grow strawberries with limited space availability. For example growing them on your deck would be a perfect use for the Tower.  The towers look like they are a clean and weed free way to farm small or large scale strawberry patches.  Plus who likes to bend over and pick strawberries??  The towers have berries at arms reach with out bending over as much as in raised beds. Here is a link to a website on how to build a tower. http://smsf-mastergardeners.ucanr.edu/Tips/How_to_build_a_strawberry_tower/  

2016 Annual Central Coast Strawberry Meeting

watsonville 2012 (52)2016 Annual Central Coast Strawberry Meeting

On Feb 4th 2016 the University of California Cooperative Extension Santa Cruz held their annual meeting to talk about their latest research on Strawberries.  Mark Bolda has provided the presentations from that meeting.  By visiting the link below you can view his presentations.  There is lots of great information concerning the strawberry industry in California, ranging from new varieties and what is going on with the use of Methyl Bromide for pre plant fumigation, and better methods for conserving water. If you have any questions you can contact Mark Bolda via e-mail @ mpbolda@ucanr.edu. You can also visit the UCSC website to find more information about Santa Cruz Resources. http://cesantacruz.ucanr.edu/ 2016 Annual Central Coast Strawberry Meeting Presentations watsonville 2012 (18) watsonville 2012 (17)
