Growing a Giant Strawberry!
Here’s a great experiment to share with your kids about strawberries:
After only a month of growing, little white flowers will start to pop up on the strawberry plant. Each of these blooms will turn into a strawberry if left alone. However, if you want to have giant strawberries try picking all the flowers off except for 3.
All the water and nutrients that the plant eats should now go to help just these three strawberries grow!
To make the experiment really cool…start with the same size plant in two different pots and then don’t pick the flowers on one. With the other, just leave 3 flowers and see if the strawberries are bigger.
Be sure to take pictures and let me know if it worked. I can’t wait to try my daughter’s super big red plump strawberries!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
