Two years ago my niece gave me a couple of strawberry plants from her garden to grow in mine. It was in September, which I read is a good month to plant them. Last year I had a about a bowl of strawberries. This year they have really spread all over our garden spot. There are lots of white blossoms and we should have lots of strawberries. They are so easy to grow for an amateur like me. I have them planted in the full sun which they love to thrive in. If you have lots of garden space and like strawberries, this might be just for you.
