Many gardeners decide to NOT grow berries because of the critters that get into them. If you grow strawberries in containers the critters can’t reach you can have unlimited berries almost year-round. In this post, I share how to plant strawberries in a hanging container.

Bren’s Tips on Growing Strawberries in Containers
- Be sure to have a container at least 12″ wide and 12″ deep
- Containers must have good drainage – the strawberry plants do not like to get their ‘feet wet’.
- Make sure the container is near spring blooming plants to welcome the bees.
- Protect the hanging containers from storms and extreme heat in late summer.
- Bring the container indoors before winter arrives and repot with fresh soil in spring for next year’s harvest.
This is my second year of growing the Ozark Strawberries by Bonnie Plants in containers. I have had great success with them and I hope you give them a try in your home garden as well. I look forward to sharing my first berries with you on Social Media so be sure to follow me!

Great tips here! I haven’t considered growing them in pots before but maybe that is how I should do it.

Enjoyed the video! Do you get alot of strawberries on the plants? Any suggestions for getting more berries?
The 3 plants that were in my container last year did wonderful. My teenager and friends ate most of them while entertaining on the deck where I had them hanging. That is when I decided I needed to plant more containers for guest to enjoy. 1 plant provided enough berries for a few ice cream toppers and at least 3 weeks of grab and munch for the boys!
