My strawberry plants are doing well, all except for that bunch that I just kinda threw together in one pot. They are getting nice green leaves on them and actually looking like living plants now! I’m beginning to have some hope for them. I’ve been keeping them outside during the day so they get lots of sunlight.
Since it was so nice out today, and I had some more potting soil, I decided to transplant the crowded bunch into separate planters. I made the pots out of newspaper, and they worked very well!
I felt bad just neglecting the poor plants like that. I knew I had to make it right with them. I dug them out of their pot of hardened soil, trimmed their roots to 4 in. and gently re-potted them. Now they seem happy. I watered them a little and brought them in for the night. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice and warm, so they should get plenty of sun when I put them back outside for the day.
Hopefully they will perk up in a few days and be nice and green like the others.
It’s hard work having plants! They are like little babies needing tons of attention. Until the danger of the last frost has passed and I can get them in the garden I am having to bring them in and out of the house every day. I am so anxious to get everything planted outside for good!
