And that's it. You have a beautifully planted strawberry pot. Within a few days, the plants will start to perk up and begin to grow toward the sun. Keep your pot watered and deadheaded or harvested and that's all it should need for the entire growing season.

If you have perennial plants and a pot material that can take freezing and thawing, you can leave your pot outdoors for the winter. Colder climates (USDA Zones 5 and lower) will need to provide some protection, to keep the plant roots from freezing.

If you are going to empty your pot at the end of the season, don't forget to store the watering pipe with the pot, to reuse next year.
