How To Grow Strawberries

from cityfoodgrowers: One of the joys of organic gardening is the strawberry patch. It’s a wonderful treat to wander down to the patch after a day's work in the garden and have an exquisite tasting strawberry. Strawberries grow in a diverse range of climates and need care to grow well. You will soon find that with appropriate care, your strawberry patch will need to get bigger.

It’s unfortunate that such a wonderfully nutritious and sweet tasting fruit is often turned into big red tasteless mush by chemical farming. The number of times I have heard people say over the last few years that the strawberries they buy from supermarkets have no taste is disturbing. And yet, strawberries are not that hard to grow, so there is no excuse for buying the tasteless ones. Why not grown your own and then share your healthy strawberry runners with your neighbours and friends.

Here are some tips on growing your own strawberries and you can also hear more tips and see my strawberry patch in our short movie on how to grow strawberries.
