How to Plant Strawberries in Pots


Even if you do not have a lot of outdoor space, you can still enjoy fresh strawberries by growing them in a pot. Strawberry pots are especially designed with multilevel pockets that enable you to grow the fruit. By planting the strawberries in a pot, you will create a beautiful potted plant as well as a delicious fruit to eat.

Step 1

Prepare the soil. Mix 1 part potting soil with 2 parts compost in a bucket.

Step 2

Add a small amount of water to moisten the soil and mix well with a garden trowel.

Step 3

Fill the strawberry pot with the soil mixture, up to the first row of pockets. Pat down the soil while filing, but do not compact it.

Step 4

Insert the plants through the top of the pot, positioning each plant in a bottom-row pocket. Make sure that the crown (leaves) of each plant are showing through the pocket opening and are not covered by the soil.

Step 5

Add more soil to the next layer and repeat step 4, until each layer is complete.

Step 6

Fill the strawberry pot with the soil mixture to the rim of the pot.

Step 7

Plant 2 or 3 plants at the jar's opening, allowing a small amount of space for each plant.
