The Best Life Hack Guide to Grow and Propagate Strawberries Quick and Easy
What Makes A Delicious Strawberry
Space Tips and Tricks
Strawberries have a rhizome root system that spreads vine-like underground as a woody structure coiling through the dirt. If it is not managed correctly strawberries can crowd your entire garden.

Plant Division Propagation
I like to isolate my strawberries. Because of their vine-like structure a "runner" as it is called shoots off the plant looking for a place to live. These runners can be guided to pots or to create new beds. This is great for the first year growing because you will have a massive abundance of strawberry plants the following years; but, it will not produce quality fruit with very low yields. The vine is tricky. A rhizome structure can be looked at as an underground bonsai. In time, with training, it will grow into a beautiful unique creation. This method is a propagation method of plant division.
Choose a Variety
I would start with varieties described as 'early-season' strawberries, followed by a mid-season type, before completion of harvest with a late-season strawberry varietal. Another way is to grow everbearing strawberries, sometimes known as the day-neutral or perpetual strawberries. Personally, I love the Albion variety because this strain yields heavy fruit with an almost soda pop texture combined with flavor when eaten. Their also great to make strawberry shortcake with.
Strawberry Water Trick
Strawberries are slightly acidic so when I water my bed I mix 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, into 2 gallons of water, using a bamboo stick because metal alters the effects of the acidity. This is a cheap, and environmentally friendly way to reduce the cost to make amazing strawberries. If you live in California or coastal region lemons grow on trees around where you live in some cases for local gardeners.
Grow Your Own
Stop Big Agriculture
Big Agriculture is poisoning their fields and the bread basket of America is filled with useless soil grown commercially in sandy dirt. They are spraying pesticides and heavy metals onto the crops. By growing your own strawberries you will be able to help the world by not promoting the continual poisoning of this fruit and give your family a meal that's refreshing and relaxing
