Please Help: Beginner Window Strawberry Grow
This will be my first experience personally growing anything outside of science class. I'm 20, live in my own apartment, in arid Mesa Arizona, have a south-facing balcony, and would like to grow strawberries in my windowsill.Ã¯Â¿Â½
Due to the direction, I get sunlight from nearly dawn to dusk. I'd prefer to grow inside for mainly 2 reasons: To fragrance/oxidize my apartment, and because the daytime temp will hit triple-digits for weeks (months) on end.Ã¯Â¿Â½Winters are very moderate, to say the least.
What are a few species you recommend? I'd like to pick fruit for as year-round as I can; would you advise a few "June-bearing" plants planted at different times, or a few "Ever-bearing" plants? Or an entirely different set-up? I'd like to keep it modest though, it's a windowsill garden not a windowsill orchard.Ã¯Â¿Â½
What size, generally speaking, should the containers be? How deep should they be? Would it be better, hypothetically, to have 3 plants in a single long container or 3 separate containers?
I'm looking for advice and guidance on any or all aspects of this, including anything I may not ask (I am a beginner, y'know !)
