See all the characteristics
Repairing Lyubava variety is distinguished by large juicy berries, good yield, carefulness in leaving, resistant to drought and frost, strong immunity. This strawberry causes admiration and love of gardeners is quite deserved: a long period of fruiting, high taste quality, strawberry fragrance.

History of removal of varieties
Russian hybrid is derived by the breeder with. Aitzhanova when crossing a foreign variety of Geneva and Russian Solovushka. It is considered the best removable variety of strawberries.
Description of varieties
Strawberries has a strong spreaded bush with good utensils. Dark green glossy dense medium-sized leaves with small wrinkles. Many durable flowerons with white medium-sized flowers are formed. Flowerines grow to the level of leaves and above. The buds of the next waves are formed immediately during flowering, so often bloom is characterized as continuous. Little mustache begin to bloom and fruit, not having time to root and form leaves.
Timing of ripening
Berries ripen from early June and until September. Two waves are isolated: Spring-Summer (June-July) and summer-autumn (August-September, in the south and October). Berries ripen together, collect 1 time in 10 days.
It is considered a variety of high acclimatization, which is suitable for any region of Russia. In the conditions of the middle strip be fruit of about 3 months. In the southern regions, the term increases to 5 months.
From one bush for the summer they collect up to 1.5 kg of large berries. Regular coloring and fruiting depletes the plant, so it is recommended to update the strawberries every 2 years.
Berries and their taste
After pollination, the fruits of a cone shape weighing up to 25 g appear. The skin is elastic shiny, the flesh is bright red dense juicy, with long transportation is not crushed. The fragrant, sweet flavor of the berry has a high rating based on tasting results – 4.5 points from possible 5. Contains trace elements, a lot of vitamin C and sugar.
Features of cultivation
For the removable variety requires regular care and watering: the bushes spend a lot of nutrients and moisture on flowering, the formation of berries. Watered as soil drying. In hot time 2 times a week. After irrigation, the beds are loose and mulched. In the spring, you can remove the first blooms, increase the yield.
Strawberry tolerates drought and heat, but the lack of moisture affects the number of buds and the size of berries. Since the plant fertures almost the whole season, then it requires regular feeding and watering. In the summer, fertile soil should be added to the bed – it protects the bolted roots and serves as an additional feeding. Ripening berries are lifted and refuted by special stands. Proper landing, regular care increases Lyubava variety yield.
In the content in the closed fitness, the fertilization time increases, this option is suitable for cold regions with a short summer, in which not all berries have time to mature. Recommended for vertical cultivation in containers.
Choosing a place and soil preparation
For the garden, a sunny plot is suitable from wind and drafts. Strawberries prefers neutral and weakness soil without moisture. Often this kind is planted on an elevation. Before boarding in two weeks, the soil is drunk and additives on 1 m2 – organic mixtures (manure, humus) 10 kg and mineral – 30-40 g (superphosphate), wood ash – 200 g.
Located at a distance of 30 cm between bushes and between the beds, in the wells with a pre-moistened substrate.
In the open soil, flowering plants pollinate insects. Often, Lyubava variety is growing in greenhouses, greenhouses, on the windowsill in the apartment. In closed areas, they pollinate artificially: a soft tassel tolerate pollen from the flower to the flower, you can turn on the fan and pollinate with air waves. For large closed areas, it is recommended to install bee hive.
Strawberry Lyubava quickly depletes the soil in the place that grows. For the season, the bushes feed 5-6 times. Gardeners do not advise fresh manure as fertilizer. It is better to give preference to other types: humus, bird litter. The first feeding is brought between rows in a dry form. Mineral fertilizers use carefully: it is better to alternate with organic. In the spring, apply – nitrogen (infusion of cowboy or chicken litter), in front of flowering – phosphoric, potash, autumn – complex drugs without nitrogen.
All about fertilizers for strawberries
One of the important techniques in the care of strawberries is the feeding. Regular fertilization makes it guarantees a rich crop. There are several different ways to feed strawberries and each of them is intended for a certain period of plant development. During flowering, fruiting and after it, the feeding must be different.
Frost resistance and need for shelter
Lyubava grade exceeds all foreign repair resistance varieties for low temperatures. With a honest winter, it is recommended to cover the bushes geotextiles.
Diseases and pests
Differs high resistant to mildew, brown spot, gray rot, strawberry bow. Gardeners rarely handle bushes Lubava by chemicals. Grade vulnerable to nematodes to get rid of the disease, affected areas are removed and burned. For the prevention of the plant spray insecticides, for example, the tool “Spark”.
Fighting diseases and pests
Strawberry is often subject to a variety of dangerous diseases that can seriously undermine its condition. Among the most common – malievable dew, gray rot, bright spot, anthracnose and verticillosis. Before buying a variety, it is necessary to ask him resistant to disease.

A variety gives a few mustache – sockets begin to bloom and fruit earlier than rooted. We are used for landing on the bed. And also the strawberry breeds the division of the bush when transplanting once every 2 years for a new bed.
Popular way to update the variety – seeding seeds. Sowing spend from the beginning of February to April. Seeds are soaked and germinated before placing in containers with a mixture of sand, peat and garden soil. Saplings are transferred to open ground when they appear 5-6 leaves, and the land will warm up. Depending on the climate, the procedure is carried out in May-June.

He is surprised by avid gardens berries in September and October, while the rest of the strawberries are already preparing for winter.
