    For my strawberries, I just got a strawberry pot and plants at Lowes and let it go. I don't know if I will have berries this year, but I do see new growth.

    Nice looking container plants! I was wondering what you grow your strawberries in. I want to take a go at it but I'm not sure what size container I ought to attempt it in. Unfortunately I have a slab of concrete as my backyard.
