Grow Organic Strawberries In 5 Easy Steps. No Green Thumb or Garden Needed!

Nothing annoys me more than when I spend WAY too much on a pint of strawberries, only to get them home to find the center three covered in mold. It drives me crazy. You would think after paying $6 for a freaking pint of strawberries, they wouldn't be crap! Wrong.

So, if you too are sick of paying way too much for crappy hothouse strawberries, then keep reading my friend. For under $20 you can grow your own strawberries! No big garden, green thumb or tons of space needed.

Step 1: Pick a pot 

Strawberries grow well in pots, hanging baskets, and of course, in the ground.  Pick the spot and growing contraption that's best for you.  I chose a strawberry pot because it came with the house. (Easy enough)

Step 2: Get the goods

You will need:
  1. Pot/hanging basket/ Topsy-Turvey hanging bag thing
  2. Organic potting soil
  3. NON-GMO Strawberry bulb plants (I went to a local nursery and got 15 bulbs for $10!)
  4. A perfect spot for the strawberries to grow. 

Step 3: Watch the how-to video (not mine, but a super short and complete how-to)


Step 4: Plant the plant!

Step 5: Water and Wait

Most plants will bear fruit within 6-8 weeks of planting!
