If you have ever thought of plating your own strawberries, DK Books has the video tutorial for you.
To complete this project, you will need a large hanging basket with an internal plastic liner, a large pot or container, 4 to 6 overbearing strawberry plants, an all-purpose potting mix, a soil-based medium, water-retaining gel crystals, slow-release fertilizer, a large scoop, a watering can, strong metal brackets, bird netting, and some tomato fertilizer. Gather all of these materials, follow the video’s simple instructions, and you will be on your way to creating a beautiful, bountiful strawberry planter!
The strawberries will require water daily in warm weather, and fertilizer every 2 weeks to keep healthy and growing. Once they have ripened, the netting will come in handy for keeping away hungry birds looking for a snack. You will want to keep them out of the colder weather, and replace the plant around every year or so.
Just think, after harvesting these delectable fruits you will be able to make all of the healthy smoothies, jams, or juices that your heart desires! As an added bonus, the planter makes a beautiful addition to any backyard or greenhouse. Good luck, and happy harvesting!
