Strawberry on the windowsill

Growing strawberries on the windowsillStrawberries are a very tasty and healthy berry, which both adults and children love, so it is unlikely that anyone will be able to refuse using it in the winter. But where can I get it, when it's freezing and cold in the street? You can try to grow strawberries on the windowsill. This requires a little effort, a special primer, which must be water and breathable, and additional lighting.

Выращивать клубнику лучше на южном окне, так как там больше солнца. Также на подоконник можно постелить любой светоотражающий материал. Для выращивания в домашних условиях отлично подойдут ремонтантные мелкоплодные сорта клубники, особенно ампельные. Посадку клубники можно производить семенами или рассадой с участка.

Growing strawberries on the windowsill of seeds

В деревянный ящик или горшки насыпаем керамзит (мелкий щебень, древесный уголь) – он будет служить дренажем. Далее насыпаем грунт. Приготовить его можно самостоятельно из следующих компонентов:

  1. Humus - 5 parts,
  2. Sand - 2 parts,
  3. Sheet earth - 3 parts.

The resulting mixture is poured over the drainage, watered and planted seeds. Next you need to periodically water the sown seeds, but very carefully and with room temperature water. The first shoots should be performed in about two weeks. Once this happens, they should be rearranged to the light and covered with glass. When the bushes reach the height of 1-1,5 cm, we plant them in a larger container, at a distance of at least 5 cm. When 5-6 leaflets appear, they can be transplanted to a permanent place on the 2-3 sockets in a fairly large pot.

Growing strawberries on the windowsill of seedlings

When planting seedlings, proceed as follows. In the beginning of autumn it is necessary to take seedlings and plant them in pots with prepared soil. This is done so that the plant can be awakened from hibernation. Then, as necessary, strawberries should be watered, but not in the usual way, but through a drainage hole in the pot. In this case, you need to ensure that there is no overflow of plants.

A few tips:

  • Горшки должны находиться на южном окне, а в пасмурную погоду и в зимнее время необходимо включать настольную лампу для дополнительного тепла и увеличения светового дня.
  • Do not overfeed the plants with organic and nitrogen fertilizers, except biohumus. As this will increase the growth of greenery, but not berries.
  • For top dressing it is better to buy special compounds for strawberries. They contain all the necessary micro- and macro elements.

Performing all these simple conditions, you can grow strawberries on the windowsill and enjoy it for a year!
