Making a Strawberry Planter!

Nothing says summer like a bowl of freshly picked strawberries. The good news is they are easy to grow in beds, containers or hanging baskets. There are summer-fruiting, perpetual and alpine types to choose from, with delicious varieties of each. If you plant several different types, you can have a fresh crop of berries from early summer right through to autumn.
