There’s nothing better than picking and eating fresh strawberries in the spring and summer. If you love strawberries, you might have considered growing your own strawberry plants. Compared to many other plants, growing strawberries is easy.
Strawberries can grow in a variety of climates, as long as they get plenty of sunlight. You can plant strawberries in your backyard or garden and enjoy them year after year.
There are many different places to buy strawberry plants. First, you’ll have to decide whether you want to buy your strawberry plants online or in a store near you.
Buying Strawberry Plants Online
Buying strawberry plants online is a great idea if you’re looking for a specific kind of strawberry plant, or if there are no stores near you that sell strawberry plants. There are hundreds of online retailers to choose from, but not all of them are reputable.

This helpful directory lists many different places online where you can buy plants and seeds of all kinds. The Garden Watchdog includes reviews and ratings, so you can see how reputable each online gardening retailer really is.

If you’re looking for a specific type of strawberry plant, you can find online retailers selling it and compare prices using this tool.
If you don’t want to shop around and just want to go ahead and buy your strawberry plants, here are some of the most popular online sellers:
- Burpee: Burpee is one of the oldest suppliers of plants and seeds in the United States. With 28 varieties of strawberry plants, Burpee has one of the best selections out there.

Buying Strawberry Plants in Stores
If you’re set on buying your strawberry plants in stores, your options will depend on where you live. One great option is to find a local garden supply store. These specialty stores are more likely to have expert staff who can help you select the right strawberry plants and give you advice on planting your strawberries.
You can also shop for strawberry plants in bigger chain retail stores. Most home improvement stores sell plants, including strawberry plants, seasonally. Check stores like Lowe’s or Menard’s in the spring or summer to find the best strawberry plants.
