PVC Strawberry Planter

PVC Strawberry Planter | garden pcms | 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.

 

Follow the photo-link to find out how to make your own strawberry tower.

Le printemps est là... enfin presque!!!

 

Votre balcon n'est pas très grand mais vous êtes gourmand... voici un style de présentation "gain de place" à mettre où bon vous semble, mais au soleil! pour des fruits bien mûrs.

 

Très facile à mettre en place dans un tuyau en PVC. 

 

Bonne plantation et surtout très bonne dégustation...

I've found this aritcle on designing flower beds in your backyard and found it really useful. Its an article on the basics of creating a flower bed but it has quite a few simple and useful ideas that I think can help the beginners out there. Have a look at it and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

 

"This guide will show you how to design and create a magnificent flower bed to enhance the color and aesthetics of your backyard, turning it into a paradise for you to enjoy."
