I was downtown wandering around and found my way into Walmarts garden center. They've got some strawberry plants in. The problem is----They're blooming and have strawberrys on them. They're also not named. I really want some strawberry plants. It surely is not good they have berries now. and not named. What do you think? I need to get them soon before walmarts neglects them.

vicki, I am not a Wal-Mart fan! But if you would pinch off the berries and blooms when you plant them, they should be fine for next year. I would rather get from a more reliable source though.

RE: Strawberry Question

Oh, but do you envy me the eating? I think thats about my favorite food, and I bet its one time my kids would ASK me if they could help pick to get a few. I do love strawberries-fixed about any way!

cersone,love strawberries too. I remembered a feed and seed store in Clarksville where we use to buy things and went there and they had some beautiful Cardinal June strawberries. So i got 7 plants. They're in a long planter.
General Dollar has some containers from Canada and Isreal cheaper than walmarts China ones.

Just in case someone sees this-- today only, Ozark Beauty strawberries from Spring Hill Nursery...

Use coupon code 414465 to take $20 off your $20+ order. Can't beat that! (through today only, so hurry)

I came here to see if OB was a good variety for us, but based on the name I think I'm going to take a chance. :)
