How to Grow Strawberries in a Pot
With Spring right around the corner, what better way to start growing some springtime fruit without the hard work of prepping your garden space, than using a simple ceramic or plastic pot to grow strawberries!
Items you’ll Need:
2-5 gallon pot with drain holes (larger containers will allow more space for more berries)
Strawberry starter plants
E.B. Stone Organic Edna’s Best Potting Soil
E.B. Stone Organic Sure Start Fertilizer
E.B. Stone Organic Fruit, Berry & Vine Fertilizer
Step 1: Fill your pot with 2/3 of E.B. Stone Organic Edna’s Best Potting Soil
Step 2: Gently lift your strawberry plants out of the grower pots and lightly massage the roots
Step 3: Place the plant in the pot and sprinkle 1 tsp E.B. Stone Organic Sure Start Fertilizer on the roots to help reduce transplant shock
Step 4: Fill the remainder of the pot with E.B. Stone Organic Edna’s Best Potting Soil and gently press the soil around the plant and water thoroughly
HOW TO SWEETEN YOUR STRAWBERRIES
Greensand can be sprinkled on the surface of the soil and cultivated when planting strawberries - this will sweeten the fruit.
Note: *Be sure to feed with E.B. Stone Organic Fruit, Berry & Vine Fertilizer and water regularly throughout the growing season.
