Posted by Toy_Machine 9 ( on

Hi, this is my first year growing strawberries and I just got my first flowers on the plant.. its an indoor grow so there are no pollinators and I was just wondering how I should go about pollinating them.. the flower is white pedals, little things standing up with a little head on them.. and in the middle is a little green round thing with tiny yellow things on it... I was just wondering what was what and what do I have to get the pollen from and what do I rub it on? Sorry for all the noon questions and thanks a lot:)

RE: How to pollinate strawberries?

Plant them outside as soon as you can. If you don't have a land a nice 12" terracotta pot, potting soil and a saucer will work. Water them when they get dry. Bees and other flying insects will pollinate them for you. Mrs. G ps hope this helps
