I got some strawberries for the first time two days ago, and planted them in a strawberry pot yesterday morning. I knew you were supposed to soak the terra cotta pot, but I forgot... This morning, I went to check on them and the soil was complete bone dry, and all my strawberry leaves were drooped over badly. I soaked them with water, sprayed the terra cotta for a while and will do so again later today. Will they be OK? The setup that I did was this:
Terra cotta pot,
inch of compost + blood meal on bottom,
potting mix with bone meal mixed into backfill
I hope that will work out OK!
I can get a picture if that will help!
