I’ve been growing strawberries indoors in containers on windowsills. Indoor strawberries do well if they re well watered and receive sufficient light to flower. Here are some photos of the first strawberry ripening on a potted strawberry plant:
You can see the first strawberry forming in the center of the flower. This plant is a container plant that I neglected to transplant into a hanging basket. Since the plant started flowering and developing strawberries quickly I thought it best to just leave it alone. Strawberries grown in the house under lights do equally well as strawberry plants in windowsill containers.
Strawberries can be grown from seed indoors year-round if you provide warmth and light. Growing strawberries from seed is more challenging, but think of all the plants and strawberries you could produce! Nothing beats fresh, home-grown strawberries. You can find an assortment of strawberry seeds here.
Strawberry Pots & Planters
If you prefer to grow strawberries outside on the deck or patio a strawberry pot or planter is an attractive and efficient method. They are made specifically for growing strawberries and come in a wide variety of sizes, styles and colors.
