A strawbarrel strawberry planter will grow delicious berries in a diminutive space.
What You'll Need:
- Large planting pot
- Potting soil
- Strawberry starts
Even if you don't have room for a garden, you probably have room for a strawbarrel.
Step 1: Fill a large half-barrel or outdoor planter with good, rich garden soil or potting soil.
Step 2: Plant six strawberry starts (which you can buy at any garden store) in the soil.
Step 3: Make certain to water your berry plants every day, keeping the soil damp but not soaking wet. Also make sure your berries get at least six hours of sunlight a day.
Before you know it, you'll be enjoying strawberries you grew yourself -- even if you live downtown!
