Strawberries are easy to grow just about anywhere in world. Head to your local nursery to find out exactly what variety you should be growing in your garden. Just keep in mind that strawberry plants need full sun.
Adding mulch to strawberry plants should be a must. Mulch is a covering, like wood chips or straw, put on the ground to help keep weeds out and the water in.
Right now is the time to dig in and plant your strawberries! What it’s still freezing where you live? That’s okay. Kids love learning that if you add a layer of clean straw or hay to your plants it will also help warm up the soil. It's like covering them with a cozy layer of soft blanket material.
What if you live in a hot place, like me in Southern California? It’s still a good idea to mulch with straw because it’ll do just the opposite. The mulch will actually help keep moisture in and cool the soil. Cool but not freezing soil will give you the best and yummiest srawberries around.
Mulch also keeps the berries off the ground so they stay cleaner and will be ready to eat as soon as you pick them.
