Strawberries taste great, are healthy & cost a lot to purchase making them a great addition to your garden.
There are also some unique ways to grow strawberries rather than the traditional in the ground methods.
Keeping strawberries off of the ground is beneficial to reduce rotting or slug damage.
In this post I wanted to share with you ways to grow strawberries in containers or planters, pots or even growing them upside down! You can do this because strawberries create a runner to spread out the plant. Many people need to remove runners once a strawberry patch is full.
The nice thing about growing them in containers is that you can use the runners & move them into a new pot increasing your strawberry pots over time.
Here are some inspiring strawberry growing ideas for you!

While we often grow strawberries in the ground, since moving and having meadow vole problems I think trying them out in containers would be a good idea.
