A friend of mine asked: “So, what fruits can I grow in my garden?” The easy answer: the three types of fruit for the home gardener that are easy to grow:  strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.  Berries?  They’re not fruits! Okay, picky, picky – tomatoes are fruits… 😉

The Hack: bigger strawberries, june producing variety, other than 1-2″ of water per week during growing season and at least six hours of sun  “…The spaced-row method limits the number of daughter plants allowed to grow. Mother plants are planted 2 feet apart in rows 3 to 4 feet apart. The daughter plants are spaced to root no closer than 4 inches apart and all other runners are removed. This method takes more care, but results in higher yields, larger berries and fewer problems with disease. …”

Day neutral and everbearing take a different technique.  Lots of great information and tips from Daily Herald | Growing small fruit in the home garden.
