Did you know that you can grow strawberries in the AeroGarden?!
Yeup, you read right!
The most practical way to grow them is by starting with small live plants that are already mature enough to have flowers. You can order strawberry crowns through us here, or you can get some at a local nursery.
We have found two methods that work with our garden.
Here's what you will need to begin: -An AeroGarden - Either the Bounty, or the Ultra -A Grow Bowl - For the Bounty or the Ultra Gardens - Strawberry Crowns (You can get the Grow Bowl and the crowns together here.
When you purchase the Grow Bowl with Strawberry crowns it comes with the coco medium and detailed instructions on how to start. In short- You set up your grow bowl per instructions, cover it with the coco medium and then gently insert the strawberry crowns.
Here's what you will need to begin: -An AeroGarden - Recommend the Bounty or any Farm Model. -A Grow Anything Kit- Strawberry Crowns
Here's what to do: 1) Rinse off all the dirt from the strawberry roots with room temperature water. 2) If the roots are small, use scissors to cut a wet grow sponge down half of its length (more if the roots are long) and gently insert the roots into the grow sponge. If the root mass is too big to insert into the grow sponge, then just insert the roots directly into the plastic grow basket. 3) The "crown of the plant" - the growing tip - should be above the top of the grow sponge.
4) Insert the grow sponge through the grow basket label, if you are using one, and then insert the grow basket into the grow deck of the Aerogarden. 5) After you have planted all of your strawberry crowns, add the liquid plant food into the AeroGarden bowl and reset the nutrient timer. You should see new growth on your strawberry plants in 7-10 days! 6) When your nutrient timer comes on in two weeks, add nutrients as instructed and reset the timer.
What's next? Tending and harvesting your strawberry garden! A little bit ofcare for your strawberries will ensure rapid growth and bountiful harvests. As your plants grow, you will start to see flowers, and before long you'll beharvesting your first crop of ripe, luscious strawberries.Here's how to get the most from your plants: Keep the water topped up.Raise the grow lights as the plants grow, keep them 2-4 inches above thetop of the plants. Prune your strawberry plants. Here's how:
Pollinate strawberry flowers: Check out our new video on 3 methods of pollinating!
Keep an eye on your garden: As your strawberry plants grow, the older leaves will start to brown and die. This is perfectly normal. Remove the brown and dead leaves by cutting them at the base of the stem. To help prevent bugs keep the grow surface clear of dead leaves. Some common plant problems and remedies are shown below.
Harvest your strawberries!
Rinse and refill the AeroGarden bowl at least monthly – very important forbest growth and fruiting! New video on How to Rinse & Refill will be out soon!

Does it make a difference if planted in the sponge or in the grow bowl?
Nope! We have found that both methods work great, and it is all up to preference.
Wich garden type must I choose (Harvest Elite) to grow strawberries? If it has no particular one for the Harvest, does the Bounty Elite has one ? If so, I will change them in my Bounty when my tomatoes and peppers will not produce anymore :-) In the meantime, I will continue with the "herbs" type for the strawberry I already have. It seems to work well.
Thank you !
Hello! Strawberries do well in our Grow Bowl, which is designed for the all Bounty gardens. However, we do not ship strawberry crowns during the summer months as the heat will damage the live crowns. Good luck!
