Strawberries are very popular as garden plants at home because they produce fruit very quickly and require very little space. They grow in bins as well as in the ground.
How to plant strawberries in pots:
Here’s what you will need:
1- A pot or a tray for planting strawberries (with drainage holes)
2- Potting soil
3- Strawberry plants
1- Buy organic strawberry plants at a nursery or garden center
2- The plants must be left in the water for about 1 hour before being planted
3- Choose a pot with drainage holes
4- Fill half or two-thirds with potting soil, plant your strawberries, and continue to fill the soil around the plants.
5- Fill up to about 5 cm from the edge of the pot.
6- When planting your strawberries, make sure that the roots point straight into the potting soil and that the potting soil reaches the collar of the plant (where the greenery begins)
7- Then, water your plants
8- Place your pot in a place that receives at least six hours of sunshine a day.
When watering strawberries, remember that you should not water too much. Check every day to follow their progress. Plunge your finger in the ground to make sure it is wet to 3 to 5 cm deep.
Tips for tracking the growth of your strawberry plants:
1- In the spring, strawberries are usually the first fruits to ripen
2- Place your strawberry bins in a sunny spot and turn them 180 degrees twice a week to keep the plants in the sun evenly. Check that the earth is wet, not wet.
3- If possible, water in the morning or during the day, but not in the evening, to avoid illness.
4- You will be able to pick your strawberries as soon as they are ripe.
