growing strawberries in containersEver wanted fresh, juicy, red strawberries within reach?

Have you ever thought of trying to do this without creating a new area of dirt in your backyard? What if you live in the heart of a city and you only have access to the sunlight on your patio?

The answer is simple, Grow Strawberries using Containers.

I came across this great article, “How to Plant and Grow Strawberries in Containers” by Darcy Logan

This article talks about this process and gives you plenty of good information to remember. Here are some of the items I noted.

  • Strawberries are one of the best plants to grow in containers and even do well indoors. All they need is a sunny spot where they can get at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day.
  • June-bearing strawberries produce a large, concentrated crop once a year during a three-week period, usually in June as their name suggests.
  • Strawberries prefer a soil with a pH between 5.3 and 6.5, but will grow in soils that have a slightly higher or lower pH level.
  • Water your strawberries well after planting and check daily. Water frequently until the plants take root. Then reduce watering to when the top inch is dry. Water is crucial for good fruit development.

There are many other tips and you will want to read the article and book mark it for future referece.

Consider buying some strawberries this week and start reaping the benefits of a June harvest.
