A Small Project to Grow Strawberry in My Backyard

Saturday, May 25, 2019
Two Strawberries

During this year spring season (couple months ago in our area), I planned a small project in my own backyard to grow strawberry in the several plastic pots.

The strawberry likes both shade and direct sun. The berry needs at least 6 hours sun on daily basis.

It is why strawberry grows well in the spring or late summer in nature. Sun light not so strong, but enough as needed.

Yes, Strawberry may grow in the small size containers. I used plastic pots with size of 6 inches height and 4.5 inches width. Very small.

Since growing in small pots, I need to water the plants more frequently, at least once a day.

What is the result?

A strawberry plant in the small plastic pot.

One of plants grew well, and produced several strawberries. The taste is better than strawberries sold in many grocery stores. Little bit sweeter.

I was so happy. I thought that I could grow strawberry at least for my own consumption during spring or summer seasons.


A sweet little red strawberry

Unfortunately, other growing berries from other pots are “stolen” by wild squirrels. The animals starts to pick even “buds” of fruits.

It seems that I invited the wild animals come to my backyard and in front of my back doors.

I need to rethinking other methods, include green house and hydroponic techniques by next year.

  1. It's so frustrating dealing with animal life in the garden. Gardens, do indeed attract all so sorts of creatures, but then that can be nice too!

  8. We are attempting to grow them too. Our plants look great but we are not seeing much fruit yet. If the critters start going after them, we are thinking about using a net to keep the berries from getting eaten.

  13. You are really clever for growing strawberry in your back yard. What you do is like my grandmother's hobby and I sometimes see her strawberries growing up.

    Thank you for sharing.
