How to Grow Strawberries on a Balcony

Strawberries in containers are well suited to balcony gardens.
Even if you live in an apartment you can grow your own strawberries as long as you have a sunny balcony. If you can create the proper growing conditions, strawberries will grow in practically any container, such as a strawberry pot, hanging flowerpot, window box, cheap plastic basket or by making containers out of plastic bottles and cans.

You can use the same method to grow strawberries in containers on a porch or patio as well.

Why Should You Consider Growing Strawberries?

Strawberries are the most popular small fruit grown in home gardens for good reason. Few things bring back good memories like sinking teeth into a fresh and juicy strawberry. Why not have these sweet berries growing in your own garden? They are able to be grown in most regions of the world!

Strawberries are relatively easy to grow, and they can fit within small space constraints or fill huge garden plots. Growing strawberries doesn’t require any specialized equipment. And, they can even be grown in a container or pot on a deck, porch, patio, or balcony.

One of the biggest benefits of growing strawberries is their perennial nature. You can reap the rewards of your labor for several years after initially planting strawberries with minimal effort after the initial planting year. With proper care, it is not uncommon for each strawberry plant to produce a full quart of strawberries. Approximately twenty-five strawberry plants should adequately supply a normal family with delicious strawberries.

10 HEALTH AND WELLNESS BENEFITS OF STRAWBERRIES

Apart from their delicious taste, strawberries offer an abundance of health and wellness benefits. As a great source of fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants, strawberries can benefit your health in the following ways.

  1. IMPROVES IMMUNE FUNCTIONING

Just one serving of strawberries offers about 150 percent of the body’s daily vitamin C requirement. This is essential for helping the body fight off infection and disease, from the common cold to the flu. Vitamin C also acts as an antioxidant, neutralizing free radicals that damage healthy DNA.
Strawberries are also a good source of fibre.

  1. LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE

Strawberries are an excellent source of potassium, which counters the effects of sodium in the body and reduces blood pressure. In addition to battling hypertension and related cardiovascular disease, a diet rich in potassium can help lower mortality risk in general.

  1. TREATS SYMPTOMS OF ARTHRITIS AND GOUT

Free radicals contribute to the inflammation and deterioration of the muscles and tissues of the body. As a result, the joints don’t function as they should and harmful toxins build up, causing conditions like arthritis and gout. The antioxidants in strawberries help detoxify the body and reduce inflammation.

  1. OFFERS PROTECTION AGAINST CANCER

Special components found in strawberries called flavonoids have the power to fight cancer and oxidative stress. These flavonoids, such as anthocyanins, quercetin, and kaempferol act as a defensive line against the development of cancer and tumors.

  1. PROMOTES HEALTHY EYESIGHT

The presence of flavonoids, ellagic acid, and phenolic phytochemicals in strawberries reduces one’s risk of age-related vision problems like macular degeneration. These antioxidant compounds scavenge and trap free radicals, preventing them from damaging healthy ocular structures.

  1. REGULATES BLOOD SUGAR

Strawberries are relatively low on the glycemic index, meaning they don’t cause extreme spikes in blood sugar after consumption. The dietary fiber provided by strawberries also helps regulate glucose, too. Making strawberries a part of a balanced diet can reduce one’s risk of diabetes or improve existing diabetes symptoms.

  1. LOWERS RISK OF STROKE

The abundance of antioxidants in strawberries also offers protection against stroke by preventing the formation of blood clots. In addition, the potassium in strawberries acts as a vasodilator that improves the flow of blood to the brain, reducing one’s risk of stroke.

  1. HELPS REGULATE MOOD

These bright red berries also benefit your emotional and mental functioning. The seeds of strawberries contain the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, which has been proven to improve mood. Surprisingly, the mood-enhancing advantages of ALA is comparable to the mood-stabilizing effects of the commonly prescribed drug valproic acid.

  1. ALLEVIATES ALLERGY SYMPTOMS

Since strawberries deliver immune-boosting and anti-inflammatory benefits, they are a great weapon against allergies. They contain a special anti-allergy flavonoid called fisetin, which helps the body’s immune cells control inflammatory reactions to allergens.

  1. PROMOTES SKIN VITALITY

The vitamin C in strawberries is used by the body to produce collagen, a protein essential to skin health. A healthy supply of collagen helps skin stay soft and springy while also repairing damaged skin cells. In addition, vitamin C serves as a free radical-scavenger, fighting the development of skin cancer and premature aging.
