I bought some strawberries last year at the garden centre and two growing bags. We didn’t get much fruit and i was wondering if I can put them in containers this year to increase the yield. I left them hanging outside over winter and most of them seem to have survived. What size containers should i use. I only have about 10 plants.

Leave the strawberry plants in the bags. Begin liquid feeding at the end of this month with any general plant food and feed every two weeks, Water just enough to keep them nicely moist with drainage from the bags.

Check for the presence of greenflies now on the leaves and especially the young leaves in coming weeks and control if necessary. Place the bags on the ground in a warm sunny spot.
