Strawberry plants are some of the easiest and most popular small fruits to grow in the home garden. They're easy to fit into gardens, raised beds, the edible landscape and even containers. When growing strawberry plants, select an area that receives full sun and has well-drained soil. When choosing strawberry varieties to buy online, make sure the plants are suitable for your hardiness zone. Cold-hardy strawberry varieties are a good choice for Northern gardeners, while other strawberry plants are top picks for the South. Other considerations when buying strawberry plants are 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).
