Small creeping perennials, strawberries are suitable for growing in a flower bed in the garden placed in a partially shady place: somewhere where the sun does not reach for a large number of hours each day.
Originating in the undergrowth, to grow well it needs soil that is cool and moist. Prolonged drought inhibits flowering and fruiting, and consequently you should water fairly often, enough to keep the soil cool, but not soaked with water.
It can be kept in position with mulching film, which will keep weeds at bay. The young plants continuously produce long stolons that creep on the ground surface, with new plants usually growing at the ends of these tendrils. It is important to regularly remove these new plants and plant them in another bed, so that the vegetation does not grow too thick.
