Growing strawberries

One of my general goals in life is to eat more fruit and vegetables. Now that we have Jake in our life we are actually doing much better as we always have plenty of fruit and veg in for him to eat on a daily basis, and wanting to lead by example we are also eating much healthier ourselves. However it does cost a lot of money to keep your household fully stocked with fresh produce, especially if you want to have variety. Hence my great idea to grow our own strawberries!

As I have previously posted, I am not a gardener. So these plants may or may not work, but I think it is at least worth trying to grow something of my own. So I got a couple of trough flower pots, filled with compost and planted six strawberry plants,  and so far I’m doing quite well at remembering to water them. I’ll keep you updated as to if any survive!

  1. This is great well done!!! We once tried to grow strawberries from seed and nothing happened so starting with the plant seems like a great way to get a good head start!!! Look forward to the updates :)

  2. I get as excited as my daughter about things growing! My husband has planted up loads of potatoes and radishes and the strawberry plant she grew from seed with her childminder last year has strawberries growing! Need to keep an eye out for the birds! Good luck for your berries. x
