OK everyone. The weather is improving and I am starting to think about plants for the patio. I have a desire to grow some fruit in pots as well as flowers and mix the pots together. I thought I would start with strawberries. Can anyone give advise. I have grown strawberries before, but not in a pot. I know that there are purpose made planters and I have read on how to water with a tube down the centre with holes drilled. What I need is advise on varieties that will give me fruit throughout the whole summer and also stand up to the weather should our summer be a disappointing one. Also is there any special type of planting medium I should know about? Or any tips gained from experience that will help.
