Strawberry feeding

When should i start putting liquid fertiliser on my strawberry plants and what type should i use. I have miracle grow liquid fertliser which can attach to a hose. Is this stuff safe to use on vegetables and fruit?

Re: Strawberry feeding

A mulch with well-rotted compost in mid Spring should be enough. some recommend feeding with a liquid fertiliser whenthe fruit starts to form. If you do this be sure to use a feed high in potassium not nitrogen. Use a tomato fertiliser for this reason. Feed at two weekly intervals as soon as you see the fruit buds forming.
