The Berries Galore Series are useful both ornamentally and for producing delicious strawberries in the garden or in containers and hanging baskets. They are ever-bearing runner strawberry plants that produce mid-sized, deep red berries over thick, glossy deep-green foliage that can be harvested every three to four days throughout the season.

Plant strawberries in well-drained, fertile soil and plenty of sunshine - at least 6 hours of direct sun a day. When planting in the ground, dig a hole about two to three times as wide as the pot the plant was grown in. If the native soil is heavy clay, mix 50% organic compost thoroughly with 50% native soil. Plant the strawberry plant with the top edge of the root ball level with the ground. Water deeply after planting. Mulch generously to help retain moisture. Strawberry plants do not like the soil to dry out completely. That being said, they don't like wet feet either. The like moist but well-drained soil. Keep an eye out for the first sign of wilt. Wilting foliage is a sure sign that your strawberry plants could use some water.

If you are planting strawberry plants in containers, here's a link to an article with helpful tips and instructions for doing so:

• Remove your plant from the pot by loosening the soil and tipping it out into your hand. Place your plant in the soil about as deep as it was in the pot.

• Refill the space around your plant with soil and press lightly to compact the dirt, keeping your plant firmly in the ground.

• Water immediately to settle the soil, and add more soil as needed, bringing it level to the rest of your garden.

I feed strawberry plants with an all-purpose organic fertilizer at planting time and then again when they start to flower heavily.

You'll want to harvest strawberries as soon as they ripen. Some gardeners pinch off the first flush of flowers or runners to allow the new plants to root in well before producing fruit.
