Planting strawberries in containers – Once you’ve assembled your strawberry plants, containers, potting mix-compost, and slow-release fertlizer, it’s time to plant! Many nurseries sell strawberry plants bareroot in spring or potted in 4 inch pots. For containers and baskets, I usually go with pre-potted strawberry plants as I only need a few and they generally are already growing well and have a head start over bareroot plants.
A typical 12 to 14 inch diameter hanging pot or basket can accommodate two to three plants. For strawberry towers or pots, tuck one plant per pocket. Plant so that the roots are covered, but the crowns of the plants are just above the soil. The crown is the short, thick stem where the foliage emerges on top and the roots below.
Water well and move your pot or basket to a location where it will get full sun: at least six to eight hours of direct light each day. If you’re growing strawberries in a hanging basket, avoid hanging it in an area that receives a lot of gusty wind. Strawberries grow best in pots that are in full sun and filled with a high-quality potting mix-compost blend. Don’t crowd them in the container, leaving at least 8 inches between plants.
