Post #8628205

I live in Las Vegas, and to compound matters I do not have any soil, only my patio. But after 16 years here I decided to try container gardening. So far the only thing to die have been the strawberries. Yes I watered them, 2 times a day sometimes, but they never responded. I planted them in fertilized vegetable soil in a large container with a drain pain under them. Any advice for the desert anyone?

Thanks,
Dave
