Not many things are more delicious than picking strawberries in the summer that you’ve grown from your very own strawberry planter! And while strawberry planters are great for growing strawberries, hence the name, there are many other creative ways to use them in your backyard…or even your kitchen. Why not take this summer to try out something new with your strawberry planter?
The original idea of using a strawberry planter was to be able to grow strawberries and avoid the problem of the fruit touching the ground, which can then cause rotting of the fruit or may give animals or pests a delicacy. Strawberry planters also allow people to grow this fruit in smaller spaces, helps with their shallow roots, and allows proper drainage. To learn how to properly use a strawberry planter for strawberries, read this article.
However, if you aren’t into growing strawberries or want to try something new, there are many other ways to use the planter to create unique container gardens, grow herbs and annuals, or even design a water fountain! Take a peek at some of the many ways you can utilize this unique planter.
