I picked up a strawberry plant last week, and it's sitting in a pot in my apt waiting to go outside. I want to plant them in a hanging basket, but make it something I can bring inside in the winter and put back out next year (i've got a pretty sunny room).
Which do you think is better? to keep them in a reasonable size pot and set that in a hanging basket outside (with good drainage), then move the container inside in the winter?
Also wondering about these planters with that straw-looking liner stuff, which would look really nice outside. Can you plant directly into the "basket" or does it need a lining of some sort? In the winter I could try lifting the whole thing into a pot inside.
Or, am I crazy and they will have to be repotted next year anyway?
thanks for the tips
