Adventures with the strawberry pot

Strawberry Pot

I don't know if any of the plants will live through this, but I filled up a nine-pocket strawberry pot with strawberry plants and a couple of thyme plants. I tried to be gentle as I threaded leaves and roots through the openings, but I know I did some damage.

Eh. A first time for everything.

I used Black Gold potting soil and followed the directions I found in this youtube video:

After watering thoroughly, I stuck an Aqua Globe in the corner, just in case.

So yeah. Strawberries. Maybe.

Good luck with the gardening! I am looking forward to seeing how things progress. I wish I had more room so I could try more than just balcony gardening.

Thanks, Maya! I remember seeing pictures of the beautiful plants on your balcony. Were they geraniums, I think? You've made excellent use of the space.

Yes, geraniums. Thanks!
