Strawberries can be grown from packaged crowns, small plants or seed. Packaged crowns are available in winter; because they usually possess a substantial root system, they’ll give the plants a head start. Small strawberry plants in mini pots are easier to find in the warmer months.
There are special strawberry pots that have a number of planting sections. If space is hard to come by, strawberries can be grown in pots or hanging baskets.
Strawberries like mulch such as lucerne, pea or woodchip straw, which helps keep the soil moist and the berries clean and up off the soil where they might rot.
