Very pretty Joanne. I love strawberry pots and have not planted mine this year. Maybe I should get to it:)

Has anyone grown strawberries in a strawberry pot? I planted some alpine strawberries in mine....I'm wondering what to do with them at the end of the season. The pot is glazed pottery, so can't leave it out over the winter. Can I bring the whole thing into our garage and set it out next spring? (Sorry--I know these aren't annuals, but hoping someone can help with the strawberry pot thing....)

Yes, every year with the alpine strawberries. I move them into the veggie garden for the winter.

A neat use of strawberry pots was planting them with cacti and succulents.
I saw this at one of the competition gardens here in Calgary.

Of course I have strawberries in a strawberry pot too. Alpine strawberries started from seed (mid February). There have been berries for a few weeks & they should continue into late SeptemberThumb of 2010-08-15/Joannabanana/e9f90f

So you're going to put those in your garden at the end of the season? I'm so afraid of them taking over....even the ones in the pot have set down runners in my herb garden.

I gave up growing strawberries. The bugs and birds always ate them before we could get one. But I get a lot of wild ones popping up in my yard.

My daughter gave me alpine strawberries to start this past spring and I never started them. How long do the seeds retain their viability?

Hi Carolyn,

I'm not sure what the longevity of Strawberry seeds are, but would imagine they would be good for a few years.

The Alpine strawberries don't have runners. The plants and the berries are small and here it is end of October and I still have a bunch of berries.

Be still my heart. Shame on you Holly. Now I'll be out looking for Blue strawberry pots. Yours are so pretty, especially the one with the yellow flowers in it. thanks so much for the photos.

I have a couple of pots of Coleus. I have grown coleus in these pots for years. I had a couple of nice inexpensive plastic pots and had Ric use a hole saw to drill six holes about 3inch diameter to make them into a strawberry type pot.
