strawberry fields for... a year
February 6, 2012 6:57 AM Subscribe
I want to grow strawberries on my Brooklyn balcony this year. Lots of strawberries, all different sizes and shapes and colors, with as long a productive period as possible (in aggregate). What varieties should I get, and where should I buy them? Should I do anything special besides giving them dirt and water? Are there any other plants that make nice companions to strawberries (esthetically or organically)? The balcony faces west and is partially shaded by trees, but does get a lot of heat and direct sunlight in the summer.
