  1. Planting your own strawberries is an immense idea after all. It is another
    easiest and prettiest way to grow fruit in a container. You’ve got an
    impressive video.

  2. excellent tips !!

  3. What about Planting a Strawberry Tree Fruit Tree?

  4. Does it matter what kind of container you grow them in.?

  5. Yeah, I didn’t know that when I bought 10 plants back in April from
    Walmart, I have like 20 plants now, they keep having babies and I am out of
    room! I thought these things died in the winter and had to be replanted,
    but I found out thru a forum that the first year you put them in, they only
    est themselves and grow, you don’t get serious berries until year 2, 3,
    etc. I thought they were more tropical, but they are actually hardy. I’m
    glad they like to be crowded, I have too many plants now.

  6. Very helpful, I’m going out to plant mine now!

  7. I planted some strawberries in two large pots, one larger, the other
    smaller, so that it looks like a fountain. That was two years ago. The
    first year they didn’t do that well, but this year they are producing quite
    a bit. This is a nice video on planting strawberries. The only thing I
    would add is to remove any berries so that the plant can concentrate on
    building a healthy root system.

  8. thank you so much :-)

  9. thank you so much for this.. great info.. I will try to plant strawberries
    next time..

  10. @hopeso – usually the problem is too much nitrogen. A mature compost would
    be a better solution.

  11. hello, im growing or trying to grow pineberries and the little seedlings
    the leaves will wilt and die and itll only have one leaf at a time can you
    pu pu pu please help me :D

  12. Wish my strawberry plants were growing…I purchased around 10 of them, and
    I’m left with one and it only grew 1 strawberry that the birds got, the
    other plants have roots, but they have all dried up…no runner
    either….can anyone give me advice.

  13. @bowler8 The bird got it lol. That sounds so funny lol

  14. Strawberry plants last for years. They come back every spring. You can also
    plant the runners that shoot off of it. My strawberry plants get bigger
    each year. This year they’re freakishly huge! It’s kinda spooky cuz if they
    get any bigger, they’re gonna strangle me. :) *grabs the gun to go harvest

  15. shoot em dear

    Would they survive a St.Louis La Ninia winter?

  18. LOL Yep, when they start sending out runners, at first you’ll be like “Oh
    how cute”. Then after they send more, you’re like “I should root these and
    have more plants”. After a few years, you’re buried up to your nipples in
    strawberry plants and it gets to be more like a strawberry horror movie and
    the Beattles song “Strawberry fields forever” starts playing in your brain
    and you’re wondering if you can make it to the car before they catch up
    with you and send runners into your ears!!! LOL

  19. Nope, just leave them be!

  20. Funny you say that. Just the other day, I thought I heard something behind
    me when I was in the garden, then when I turned around, one of the
    strawberry plants was kind of swaying back and forth, like if something had
    brushed by it… then I ran into the house and locked all the doors and
    windows when I heard this: “If you build it, they will come.” I don’t want
    to go back out there anymore.

  21. I had a row of strawberries along the south facing fence that would yield
    about three or four handfuls of berries, not a lot. In the fall, I
    transplanted them all into three rows, 2 ft apart, about 10 ft. long. I
    added some sheep manure on top of the soil and this year, all the plants
    are thriving with huge leaves and multiple runners, it’s all growing like a
    weed. But, very few strawberries. I kept them well watered and we’ve had a
    very, warm, sunny summer. What did I do wrong ?

  22. do you plant strawberries once or do you have to replant them every year
    like tomatoes???

  23. can you clone strawberries?

  24. ” THANK YOU ! “
