Strawberry Plant Growing Tips

Everyone loves a juicy, sweet strawberry treat in early summer. In today’s post I share how strawberry plant growing tips I’ve learned over the years of growing them just about every way possible.  Everything from in the ground, containers and year-round dome. 

My Strawberry Plants

My strawberry growing began about five years after we moved out to the country.  I grew the berries directly in the ground like the farmers do in my area.  I’ve later been introduced to different varieties that grow productively in containers.

Strawberry Growing Tips 

  1. Add berries that grow well in your area.  Reach out to local growers and garden centers to see what they recommend.  I popular berry in NW Ohio is Jewel, June Berry and Ozark.   I found information at the Ohio Extension Office site: Strawberries are an Excellent Fruit for the Home Garden
  2.  Use straw in between plants to keep weeds out and hold moisture.
  3. Be sure the berries are planted in full sun.
  4. KEEP UP with the weeds….. weed often so the berry plants can grow healthy and multiply

Supplies

  1. Fantastic tips! Especially the grow varieties that work best locally. Have had “white soul” alpine strawberries for a few years but they’ve never really given a great harvest. Probably should add a few better local cultivars to my garden!
