Who says you have to crawl around in the dirt to grow great strawberries? Give your back and knees a break -- and your eyes a treat! -- by growing your berries against the patio wall, dangling from a post or hook, or in any other "vertical" location you choose! Just fill the reusable, almost indestructible Growin' Bags with potting soil, set a Park's Whopper Strawberry plant in each of the 10 holes along the side of the bag, water it well to get the roots going, and hang it in any sunny spot. It's just that easy!
Growing berries off the ground makes a lot of sense. You get to enjoy the lovely white blooms that appear before the fruit. And when the berries emerge, they stay cleaner, are less prone to rot and nibbling insects, and are free to develop full, perfectly-formed shapes -- no flat white side! You get a ton of berries in a compact space. Big fruits, worthy of the Park's Whopper name, arrive in early summer on cold-hardy plants that are just as at home in the Northeast as in the deep South!
To get you started on the strawberry patch -- or should we say "pole"? -- of your dreams, we've got 25 delicious, heavy-bearing Whopper strawberry plants plus 2 Growin' Bags. Just add soil, water, and a hearty appetite! Zones 3-8.
