One of the easiest and most popular small fruits to grow, strawberry plants are easy to fit into gardens, raised beds, the edible landscape and even containers. Strawberries grow best in full sun and well-drained soil. Some strawberry varieties are very cold hardy and suitable for Northern gardeners, while others are top picks for the South. When choosing strawberry varieties to buy online, make sure the plants are suitable for your grow zone. Next, consider what type of strawberry you'd like to grow: Junebearing (produce one big crop in late May or June), Everbearing (produce 2-3 crops per year) or Day Neutral (produce fruit throughout the growing season).
