How to grow strawberries

If you want to obtain a rich and tasty production of these delicious fruits, buy the seedlings in the period from June to September, plant them in tubs on your terrace. After only a few weeks, the plants will begin to produce flowers and stolons. The stolone is a very common lateral branch in the strawberry, which takes root alongside the "mother" plant giving rise to a new seedling always inside the same pot and soil. Some of the stolons must be pruned to direct the plant's energies to the production of new branches before winter. Starting from May, if the seedlings produced by the stolons have roots they can be uprooted and transplanted into new tanks. In the following spring, the plants will begin to produce large, succulent fruits until the end of summer.


Growing strawberries in a greenhouse

Having a greenhouse for the cultivation of fruit seedlings and vegetables is one of the greatest desires of gardening enthusiasts. The cultivation of these fruits is influenced in particular by light and temperature. For the cultivation of seedlings in large greenhouses, these two elements must be taken into account. The greenhouse should be bright and let natural light filter through as much as possible, attention must be paid to the high temperatures of the summer months, July and August. To allow adequate growth, the temperature must remain around 27 degrees. For cheaper solutions, during the winter months build a do-it-yourself greenhouse, covering your plants with a large pvc plastic sheet and fix it to the pots with wire.
