Hi, I'm Stan De Freitas, Mr. Green Thumb, for On Gardening. Strawberry plants are great plants to have in baskets, and in your vegetable garden area. The Strawberry plant is an easy plant to grow, and of course we've had it growing for just about ever, it seems. Most of the people will think of Strawberries with straw on of course, but you can also grow them in containers. As has been pointed out, the Strawberry has its seeds on the outside. Of course, they're not much of a seed, but they're there. You can harvest across Strawberries on a regular basis. Remember, the Strawberries need about six hours of bright sun a day, and as the name implies, straw used to be used to cover them during the cold times. If you get a real cold spell, you may either want to put a coating of ice on them, or you may want to put some straw over them, as well. The Strawberry plant is a nice addition to the lawn and landscape, as far as it's an edible plant that's a pretty plant, as well. Of course, you have this fruit here. Make sure you keep harvesting it. Just like you'd take chicken eggs, the more you harvest, the more it will keep producing. Here, you see we've got some Strawberry ready to harvest, some that's still coming on, and you've actually got a green one, as well. Strawberry plants are easy to grow, they're fun to grow, and they're tasty. For On Gardening, I'm Stan De Freitas, Mr. Green Thumb.
