Extending My Strawberry Patch

Strawberries are among the easiest berries to grow. They're cold-hardy, adaptable, and can be planted in both garden beds and containers. Here at the farm, we're extending our strawberry patch, so we have more delicious, sweet fruits to pick next summer.

Earlier this year, my gardeners planted a large bed of strawberries behind my main greenhouse. The area is filled with nutrient-rich, well-draining soil, and the bed gets lots of full sunlight - the best conditions for these well-loved fruits. The strawberries did so well, I decided to lengthen the rows of strawberry plants to give them more room to grow and thrive.
