Row by Row Episode 220: Growing Strawberries At Home

It's that time of year again, we always get excited when it's time for growing strawberries at home. Don't have a big garden? You can grow them too! Tonight, we give you tips on how you should be growing strawberries in-ground, in containers, towers, and much more!

Growing Strawberries At Home

Yes, there are many ways to grow strawberries at home. We've tried both in-ground and in containers, and both did well BUT did one do better than the other? Growing strawberries throughout the fall and winter months, you can grow them in USDA Hardiness Zones 6-10. Zone 6, you should plant earlier, in September to get them well established before the cold hits. In Zones 7 & 8, plant in October, and in Zones 9 & 10, plant in late October or November.

The TWO Major Struggles With Growing Strawberries

  • Weeds - They tend to take over. Using a good hand tool like the push-pull hoe is a great option for raised beds.
  • Birds - keep the birds off the berries! Use netting or some type of cover. A fellow gardener told us she painted rocks to look like strawberries, when the birds "tried" the rocks, they realized this isn't edible, so they eventually left the actual fruit alone once it started producing. We may try that in our raised beds this year!

Soil & Fertilizer Requirements

Always check to make sure your pH levels are between 6.0 and 6.5. Don't stress if it's off a little. Fertilize heavy up-front, and give them plenty of food early on. Visit Hoss University for more information on fertilizer. (link below) Add complete organic about 1 week before planting.

How much Hoss fertilizer and Hoss micronutrients for June bearing potted strawberries in zone 11 (Kealakekua, Hawaii 96750 at 1,500 feet elevation). My balcony container garden is in the middle of the Kona coffee growing area. I planted strawberries in Sept. I used 10-10-10 and fish emulsion. Is it too late to use your products? Thank you very much.
