Strawberries in L.A.

Papuli | Jun 7, 2009 11:44 AM

Anyone have any tips for strawberries in a pot? I have them on my balcony that gets a lot of sun, especially late afternoon. I had them partially shaded but moved the pot to full sun, but I have no idea if that's the correct thing to do.

I bought the plant a couple months ago and so far have only harvested four fruits, and that includes the two already ripening when I bought it.

I actually have two specific care questions, also: should I clip off the stalks after they bear fruit? And how much should I water?

Thank you thank you thank you....I'm new to this!
