Planting your strawberries plants in your hanging basket.
This is what you do after you buy your strawberry plants from your local greenhouse or garden center. You take the potted plants or if you can get in the spring bare rooted plants that are ever bearing . The bare rooted plants will work just as well as the potted strawberries plants that you buy. You take your empty hanging basket and you fill it up to the rim of the inside of the basket with potting soil. Then you take your potted plant or bare rooted plants of strawberries and you can one plant in the center of the basket or if your plants are small you can plant three in a basket or how about five for a fuller basket faster. Make sure when planting the strawberry plant in the basket be sure to be careful to keep the crowns just at the soil line and not to deep because it will cause the plant to rot or to shallow as they will heave. Then you don't have to wait so long as you do with just one plant or three plants in your hanging basket or baskets that you have planted. After you planted your strawberry basket then you can take and water your basket thoroughly and hang the strawberry basket or baskets on your porch and make sure that it is evenly moist after you planted it for the entire growing season. Also make sure you fertilize your strawberry basket doing the growing season. Make sure you do it about every 10 to 14 days when using a soluble liquid plant fertilizer when watering your plants.

When to pick your strawberries that are ripe from your hanging basket or baskets.
Do not pick your strawberries fruit off your strawberries plants in your basket or baskets until the fruit of the strawberry is completely ripe. when they are completely ripe then you can pick them off the plant and before eating them make sure you wash them in water to have them clean before you eat them. This way you will be safe and not carring any germs or disease that could be on the ripen fruit.Then you should sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor. And start to eat what you have grown. You can eat them like they are or have them for breakfast in your cereal cut upwith milk on the cereal. Also you could have them for lunch in a nice big fresh salad with fresh garden lettuce and other vegetables and fruits. And put on top of your salad you favorite salad dressing. And this is a way you can enjoy your freshly grown strawberry fruit that you have grown. And other thing you can do with your fresh picked strawberries is to wash and clean them for to use in desserts
