    I bought my berries from a local market. When I bought it they only had 1 bud. Took it home and planted it, and a week later I have over a dozen buds and 3 strawberries growing. I wonder if it has anything to do with feeding it coffee grounds egg shells and old coffee? My girls love going out everyday and checking to see what’s new.

    We have had amazing luck so far. We used some of the first few runners and got 6 more plants out of them. We are now trimming all runners and flowers (a must for good root growth). We will look forward to the fruit in mid October. Good Luck everyone.

    Pretty good, for everyone with trouble someone in these reviews are giving tips. Like this one! The tip helped me grow it and btw what I’m saying is the plant needs nutrients. Not water or fertilizer, fertilizer is why it’s all runners guys!

    These strawberries are so good! And also I named my Ozark Beauty plant “Pixel Killer” because I like the game Pixel Gun 3D. My plant also grew like 6 strawberries at a time!!!

    I planted 25-28 of these plants in the garden. My guy who mows the lawn decided to fertilize them one day without asking. He completely used the wrong fertilizer with high nitrogen (first number) and a TON of it! The runners exploded. It got so bad with runners I couldn’t weed the garden without ripping out some plants. I almost went out to find sawdust to reduce the nitrogen in the soil. But after using the right fertilizer and being patient. I used Super Bloom / Rose Bloom Food and got quite a few strawberries at the end of the season. They were very nice strawberries. Going to put down plastic mulch and trim off runners this year.

    We’ve gotten gobs of runners on our Ozark Beauty strawberry plants and only a few strawberries. This is the first year we’re growing them, so maybe they’ll be better in the second year. Maybe I should trim the runners more often. We’re growing all of our strawberries in hanging pots, so the runners hang down and look really pretty. The taste has been good on the few strawberries we got.

    I bought plants in mid April, and have yet to see a bloom. I planted them as instructed and all I have are runner’s. The plants look nice and healthy, but that’s the only good thing I can say about them.

    For those having trouble bearing fruit, Bonnie didn’t put it in here but strawberries are sensitive to fertilizer. If you have tons of foliage and no fruit then cut back on the fertilizing.

    These are monstrous plants. I allowed a few buds last year and the berries were sweet and delicious. This plant grows quickly in humid conditions. Soil ph should be between 6 and 6.5 in sandy soil. The soil must allow for good drainage. one plant has already produced 50 buds. This is not a plant that you just put in soil and water. They need a lot of nutrients. I suggest using bone meal or root quick start once a week for the first month. All in all, a great tasting berry from a plant that produces a lot.

    I also got these plants from Lowes, just this year, 2015. I planted them straight away and they’ve grown loads of berries with amazing taste. I suppose it depends the time of year you purchase the plants and from where you purchase them.

    Everbearing or Neverbearing?: I bought my Ozark Beauties at Lowes on May 12, 2012, and planted them right away. The plants look great; however, they have never produced any berries. They have never even flowered. I’m beginning to think they are the “neverbearing” variety.

    The plants do not produce fruit: I cannot recommend this plant. It looks healthy and sends out runners but has yet to produce one berry. Other berries planted at the same time are producing.

    If only I could keep the blooms: I purchased a few of these plants at a local home improvement garden center. This is my first year growing strawberries, and these have been growing well in a container. I did allow a few of the first blooms to produce fruit in early spring, even though all the advice I read online recommended otherwise. My kids were dying to taste home grown berries. They loved the ones that ripened in late spring. After I let them sample a couple, i plucked the blooms and runners to allow strong root growth. It's now August and I see the signs of another wave of blossoms on the horizon. I guess I should pluck those as well (sigh). If we get alot of berries next spring, it will be worth it.
