    Are day neutral berries annuals or do they set runners? And is a pine berries growth habit the same as strawberries?

  3. Angry Dinosaur on July 14, 2022 at 10:17 pm

    I commented on another video with cantaloupe and did tell me son. He mentioned strawberries and I should do those too. Here I am.

    Shade. I have it but limited. Small batches are ok.

    Those rotting strawberries save the seeds…dry and try planting them next spring.

  6. kettycat on July 14, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    Thank you for the tips. I’m going to try growing strawberries in Jamaica, I know it’s hot so 🤞

  7. RBT on July 14, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    I have found the plants to be very frost tolerant. In fact, it was recommended to plant between December and April for my area zone 7b. I did this and they did well even though we had heavy frost after planting. I planted bare root plants.

    Thanks . This is very good and of much help.l now can make money.

    For the birds and deer you just need a yard full of dogs

  10. Roz Marie on July 14, 2022 at 10:27 pm

    Great information! I just planted my 1st strawberry plant. Maybe I should try companion planting just for preventative measures. Thanks for this video! 🍓

    Wow this was awesome! Am I able to visit your garden?

  12. Patricia Nelson on July 14, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    Thank you so much for your tips for us in AZ. I moved six miles east, and it was a big difference in soil, so my Strawberries didn’t make it last year. Have a great year in your garden, looks like it will be weather wise.

  13. james sanders on July 14, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    Propagate the cut off runners using a cup of water for the bud to rest in. They wii root quickly and become new plants and you didn’t throw them away!

  14. MYSONGZZ1 on July 14, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    Great tips ❤

  15. Vixeи on July 14, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    Im kind of confused. I read strawberries need full sun

  16. Cinder Ellie on July 14, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    Putting strawberries in a sealed mason jar keeps them fresh longer. Xoxo

    How you make compost tea?

  24. Linda Beckman on July 14, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    I’m so glad to have found your channel, as so many gardening channels are from colder climates. I live in Southern Nevada, outside of Las Vegas. My husband brought me 4 beautiful hanging baskets of strawberries from Home Depot, and we hung them under our pergola that we covered with tan colored shade cloth (I don’t know the % shade). At first they were doing really well and producing berries, but now that the weather is approaching 90, they seem to be struggling and the edges are turning brown. I haven’t had a ripe berry for several days now, although I can see several green ones. I did mulch around the edges of the basket with small bagged bark pieces when we hung them up. Do you think they are getting too hot being less than 2 feet from the shade cloth? Our area has been windy lately too. Do you think they would do better in large containers in more shade? We don’t have much shade here, but I have some metal barrels next to (& north of) our cattery that has a fiberglass roof. How much shade is too much in hot climates like ours?

    Angela is straight to the point, she is not looking for attention or fame

  36. Redsoil Gardener on July 14, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    Thank you Angela for this video. I have really wanted to know how to grow strawberries and this video is all that i needed

  37. Linda Rich on July 14, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    Should crowns be above mulch? I use coco coir chips. Crowns above soil, I know.

  38. pajamagirl123 on July 14, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    Thanks for the in depth video! I have second year strawberries in containers now that just started putting off flowers. In regards to pruning them, as I understand it, this should only be done during the first year after the crowns are planted to help the roots get established and then next year the flowers should be allowed to grow in like normal to produce berries. Are you saying that even for established plants, the first flowers should still be pruned? If anyone knows the answer, please share!!

  39. Black Guns and Gardens on July 14, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    Thank you for the thorough and informative video…All of my strawberry growing questions were answered….Salute!!!

  40. Philly Colorz on July 14, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    You probably covered everything I can think of thanks. I planted three plants in a 3ft-15ft. In one year I had it bustling with strawberries. They are one of the most productive plants I’ve ever seen.

  41. DJ Ratino on July 14, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    I made a deer cage around my strawberries. Everytime I go to get replacement plants, the varieties change. I have a mixed bed of pinnacle, ozark beauty, and quinault. Do those varieties get along? I mainly buy Bonnie Plants from Home Depot or Lowe’s.

  42. Nail og on July 14, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Girl you real

  43. Bill Cook on July 14, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    What about planting strawberries in the high deserts of AZ?

    Thank you for sharing. A viewer from the Philippines.

  45. David Schmidt on July 14, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    Nice vid, I enjoy listening to you speak. Calm and well-paced, and obviously knowledgeable. I wish you would have given a bit more info and pics about using the crown to start new plants, but the rest was very good. Thanks.

  46. Its Buffy on July 14, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    I need to know about that irrigation you got there! Oooh

  47. Dwight Mansburden on July 14, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    What kind of irrigation system is that? I haven’t seen a grid layout like that before.

  48. Sally Semrau on July 14, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    Greetings from Tucson, I copied your water tube grid. I just ordered the barb crosses, barb tees and the corners.

  49. Kenneth Blain on July 14, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Great video. You just got a new subscriber. Second year gardener here and need good advice without 20 minutes of useless talking about the kids, dogs, cats, weather etc.😀
