Potting up Strawberries

posted Mar 29, 2013, 11:16 AM by Unknown user
Last Spring (2012) I planted a strawberry patch with new plants.  Throughout the hot, dry summer of 2012 I kept them watered and they grew very well spreading into a dense mat.  Today I decided to dig out a few (10) of the new plants (there are plenty left over and I anticipate a nice berry harvest in a few weeks) and to pot them up for the church plant sale.  Digging them was just a matter of prying them out of the ground and knocking of excess dirt (kinda muddy after all the rain and snow this Spring).

I put them into 4-inch pots using commercial potting soil as the medium.  We'll keep them moist and in bright light for the next few weeks until the sale.
