Strawberries tend to grow throughout your garden and crowd out your other fruit and vegetables. They produce delicious fruit, however strawberries left to ripen on the ground tend to rot from contact with the ground and moisture. You can purchase or make your own strawberry planters. This will save room and keep the fruit off the ground. If you want plump, red, sun-ripened strawberries, then a strawberry planter is a must.
Strawberries have shallow root systems. They need good drainage, and they love full-sun.
