Planting a Strawberry Patch

If you enjoy gardening and want to grow some delicious summer fruits, try strawberries. Strawberries are among the easiest berries to grow. They are cold-hardy and adaptable, and can be planted in both garden beds and containers.

Every year, I plant a crop of strawberry plants. This season, we have some growing in my vegetable greenhouse - a few are deep red and ready to pick. And last week, my gardeners planted a large bed of strawberries in a patch behind my main greenhouse just next to my garlic. As long as they are planted in a location that gets full sun, they'll thrive and will provide sweet, luscious fruits for several years.
