Strawberry Tower

I built and planted a strawberry tower this weekend.

I drilled 2" holes with a hole saw and staggered them along all four sides.  I buried it about a foot deep.   I took a 3/4" pipe and drilled small holes in it and placed it down the center of the post to use for watering (the cap comes off to get to the pipe).  I added soil from the garden and as I came to each hole I transplanted a wandering strawberry out of my garden path into each hole.  I'll let you know how it works this year!

Get your hands dirty!


  1. that is so cool...definitely let me know so I can find a handy person to make me one...I actually know a neighbor who would love to do this I bet and a client as the creativity ...

  2. Matt, that is a brilliant idea that even appeals to this ornamental gardener.

  3. What a great addition to your gardens. Wonderful idea and I love the style....hmmm, now what to do with all of my strawberry plants..?
