PVC Strawberry Planter

PVC Strawberry Planter | Growing Gardens | Scoop.it

What are the advantages of this system? The most obvious is the ability to grow many plants in a small space. It’s an interesting way to maximize the production of a small garden, or to grow strawberries on a deck or balcony. 

 

But there are other advantages. Since the plants are off the ground, you’ll be able to grow very clean, very high-quality berries. Disease problems can be minimized with the off-the-ground approach, particularly in a greenhouse where constant airflow is provided.

Succulents and Cacti – it’s easier than you think! | Growing Gardens | Scoop.it

Cacti and succulents often seem intimidating, but they are actually forgiving plants that respond to a gardener’s attentions by multiplying freely (succulents) or bursting into bloom (cacti).  Because they require little water, succulents are a great choice for rooftop gardens.

 

Follow the photo link to discover the benefits of, and instructions for, planting succulent gardens.
