Strawberry and Tomato Greenhouseadmin
Tomatoes and cultivated strawberries are very common horticultural plants, but they can cause problems when sown very close together. The good news is that with careful planning and management before and during the growing season, both plants can be in the same garden.
Tomatoes and berries from many different plant families. Between strawberry and tomato greenhouses there are substantially different growth habits and almost diametrically opposed environmental requirements. For example, tomatoes are usually grown as annual plants; They stop fruit production below 12 degrees and die when exposed to frost. However, the temperature at which strawberries stop producing fruit varies between 5 and 8.
Strawberry and Tomato Diseases
Despite their differences, the two plants suffer from the same diseases as Verticillium wilt and anthracnose. Mutual sensitivity to some diseases is the main reason why traditional wisdom says strawberry and tomato greenhouses can be made together.
The disease can be controlled in several ways. Generally, a combined approach in strawberry and tomato greenhouses alone is more effective than any of these measures:
In the same greenhouse, plant tomatoes and berries as much as possible.
The greater the distance between them, the less chance of an accidental cross-disease if one of the plants becomes diseased.
Choose only tomato and strawberry varieties resistant to diseases that are common in the region. For example, if verticillium wilt or anthracnose is problematic for the crop in your location, use only anthracnose-resistant and Verticillium wilt-resistant varieties of both plants.
