Strawberries are one of the easiest fruits to grow. Growing strawberries in your garden will provide you with delicious fruit. Strawberry plants are perennials and come back each year.
It is best to buy a strawberry plant from a garden store. Plant the strawberries in your garden after the last frost. You should plant strawberries 20 inches apart. Planting strawberries in a raised bed can help with water drainage and to help the strawberries to only spread in the raised bed. Strawberry fruit is ready for harvesting 4-6 weeks after flowers are on the strawberry plant. Strawberries need 6-10 hours of sunlight a day. Pick the red strawberries every three days and enjoy!
