Part of a Series: Grow Your Own.

After giving budding gardeners plenty of reasons why they should grow their own strawberries (“You Don’t Need a Yard!,” “Freshness and Flavor,” etc.), this cheerful and helpful volume introduces the basic steps to create a berry pot or plot. Chapters cover needed supplies, planting, care, pest and disease control, harvesting, and preparing plants for the next season. The bright photos capture kids at work and “Science Spot” text boxes deliver relevant and interesting facts. A recipe for strawberry cheesecake adds to the fun. The final pages contain a gardening calendar, glossary, Web site list, an index, and tips for joining or starting a gardening club.
