Strawberries are cute, exquisite, lovely, adorable decorating plants. Whenever you fall in love with hanging baskets or pots, get a few more than planned for both the patio and the house. Here’s a hanging planter that will work wonders in a patio or winter garden; all you have to do is hang it from the ceiling.

In fact growing strawberries in hanging pots is an easy task to do on your own in just few minutes.

All you have to do to have these plants to blossom and provide you with a big harvest, is getting a hanging container (basket or pot), plants producing heart-shaped sweet fruits, suitable soil, slow release and organic fertilizer like high phosphorus liquid fertilizer.

You can choose the hanging pot that you like the most (with a preference for self watering containers if you are short on time when having a garden patch) and that fits within the area that you have selected for planting the fruits. These berries need a a sunny place.

However, make sure to provide proper drainage through holes punched at the bottom and prevent the drainage of soil using saucers.

It is important to note here that the support you provide to the hanging pots should be able to bear the weight of the pot particularly when the plant is being watered. And believe me, it may be quite heavy. In addition, be cautious of climate changes. For example, not long ago one of my own hanging pots fell on the ground during a storm. I had to buy a new one and repot everything. Luckily, strawberries are really easy to pot, grow and harvest.

Why You Should Grow Strawberries in Hanging Containers

Advantages of potted gardens

How To Grow Your First Strawberry Garden

There are many reasons to grow strawberries in hanging baskets. Containers that can be hung are a beautiful way to decorate your outdoor space, whether small or absolutely tiny. They even make stunning decorative items in a large patio.

There is a wide range of stylish pots to choose from: from simple hanging plastic pot to resin wicker looking hanging baskets to ceramic plant pots. Hanging containers can provide you with a beautiful and colorful outline for your veranda, patio, balcony…Though, if you are unsure to be able to water your fruits regularly, I’d suggest to opt for self watering containers. These are time and plant savers.

Another advantage of growing strawberries in hanging pots is that, if you use them to surround your patio, Arizona room, summer house or balcony, you can enjoy the view of your neighborhood without disrupting your privacy.

Unlike large gardens, these baskets are quite easy to take care of and maintain. Watering and caring of strawberry plants becomes painless: no need to walk on your knees for hours, you can do everything standing on your feet. What a relief for the back!
