Strawberries        

These are my first attempt at strawberries, growing in a long self-watering windowbox-style trough. They’re thinnings from someone else’s strawberry patch and while they seem to have recovered from the shock of transplanting, I doubt I’ll see any strawberries on them this year.

I’m planning on planting strawberries in the spring so I’ll be following your experience closely!

You’re very welcome to but I’m not sure how much help I’ll be- my strawberries aren’t the happiest-looking plants I’ve ever seen, and I sincerely doubt I’ll be seeing any flowers or berries off them this year. But then I guess we learn as much from mistakes as glorious successes, don’t we? I should get over not wanting to write about my failures and post some of the photos of these strawberries, gloomy though they are…

I’m halfway thinking I’ll cheat & go get some nursery-raised plants anyway, before it’s too late- I just baulk at paying $3 per plant when it takes 10 or more plants to get a harvest! That’s one big investment for plants that only live a few years.
