Here’s how…

How to Grow Strawberries

Necessary supplies:

Purchase already started strawberry plants from your local garden center or buy starter plants online from a reputable retailer.

10 Eversweet Everbearing Strawberries Plants

When purchasing, be sure that the plant is an everbearing strawberry, meaning it will continuously produce fruit.

Fill the hanging pot about 1/2 way with organic soil and place the strawberry plant in the center. Continue filling, around the plant, with soil until the pot is full.

Hanging Plant Pot

Be sure to use a hanging basket with good drainage.

When choosing the pot, make sure it includes a water collector for the bottom.

Press the soil down gently, but don’t compact the soil. Lightly water the soil.

Hang the strawberry plant in bright sunlight for at least six to eight hours each day. Water as needed.

Place the plant in a dark or dimly lit area after the sun sets and leave it there until the sun rises the next day.

A room that is unused or not often used is a great place to leave the strawberry plants  during the night.

Pick the strawberries as they ripen and place them into freezer bags for long term storage or make jellies, jams or preserves.
