    Window boxes and troughs are another possibility but, as stated, you do need to keep them watered and fed as nutrients and moisture in compost are all limited to what you provide.

    Larger baskets will need less watering

    Use the largest basket you can get, make sure to put down a plastic bag in the bottom before filling with soil to act as a reservoir of sorts.  I just used a shopping bag that went 1/3 of the way up the sides.  Poke a hole or two in the bottom center so it doesn't get too boggy.  I've had much more success with alpine strawberries in baskets, so try some of those.  They fruit for much longer, the berries were tiny but packed more punch than the normal varieties, and they were less bothered by pests and birds.

    I find strawberries hard to plant in my area.. either the crops are too small.. the insects and birds eat away at them or my kids picks at them before they even ripe. 
    I’m trying for blueberries this year. Will definitely get a net to protect from bees, birds and kids lol
    Hoping it’ll be a success. 
    Good luck with growing your strawberries ^_^
