Hanging basket with strawberries and trailing lobelia - edible?

Posted by pokysan (My Page) on

I wonder if anyone can help. I am a beginner to gardening, and planted a strawberry plant with trailing lobelia in a hanging basket (with poppy and petunia seeds too!).

Aside the overcrowding issue, is it safe to grow these plants together? Will the strawberries be adible if they are sharing the same soil? (Hasn't fruited yet).

If not, is it safe for me to transplant the strawberry plant, which is doing well, into other soil and still eat the fruit, or will it be contaminated?

Any ideas would be gratefully received!

Many thanks!

Plants don't affect each other quite like that, your strawberries will be edible.
