Strawberry Tower

Wed May 24, 2017 2:30 am

I just finished building this!! I put some transplants in the top, then some bare root strawberries on the sides. I also have another strawberry plant in a raised bed that I'll use to get runners and plant those in the tower. Image

Oh wow! I love that idea! Looking forward to se how it grows! Is that a watering pipe on the top?

I have a PVC pipe going down both sides. I'll post updated pictures soon. I actually took this apart and made it into two smaller towers. It's much easier to care for the plants at the top that way. I have bare root strawberries planted in the sides, but none of them have come out of dormancy yet.

I have my strawberries in a regular Raised Bed, but I'm not a 100% satisfied with that. It makes a good slug hideout, and the slugs also munch on my strawberries. I'm thinking about doing some kind of vertical solution for next season, but not sure what type yet.

I really like this, but I wouldn't use bare root strawberries. Mine are still in dormancy. Not sure if they're going to come out of it...

Here's the current setup after I divided up my large tower into two smaller towers.

I have a PVC pipe going down the two sides. I'll post refreshed pictures soon. I really dismantled this and made it into two littler towers. It's considerably less demanding to administer to the plants at the best that way. I have uncovered root strawberries planted in the sides, yet none of them have left torpidity yet.
