Growing strawberries can be interesting and rewarding for the home gardener. Strawberries can be grown anywhere in Ontario. They are the first fruit to ripen and, by choosing suitable varieties, ripe berries can be picked throughout the summer until late fall. Berries are delicious when served fresh and can be frozen, canned, or made into jam, jelly or juice. With proper care, enough berries for a family can be obtained from a relatively small area. The plants also have ornamental value. Choose a sunny location.
