If you have a friend or neighbor with a healthy crop of strawberries, you may be able to get a few starts for free. Strawberry plants send out new daughter plants each year and most people are happy to share!
Strawberries prefer a well-drained sandy or loamy soil. They do not do well in heavy clay soils or areas with poor drainage. They also prefer full sun.
Variety selection for any type of fruit or vegetable is important, especially if they are perennials and need to be tough enough to handle the cold Wyoming winters.
