A PVC pipe could be used as a strawberry garden and cheap to make. It can be laid out grounded horizontally, attached to a fence, or tied up to the post of a porch, saving space in the garden needed for growing other plants. It’s another Do-It-Yourself project that gardeners will like because it’s cheap and brings originality to the home. This is how to make it in a nutshell.
Get a PVC pipe that is 4 to 8 inches in diameter, determine the height or length desired, and cut through it with a hacksaw or circular saw. Then, cut a few 1 1/2-inch-diameter holes with a hole saw on top of each other (vertically) on three sides of the pipe with 6 to 8 inches in between them. At the end cap, drill out 1/8-inch diameter holes.
After mounting or tying the pipe to wherever it is desired to be, cut a separate piece of pipe for irrigation, 1-inch diameter, and about 4 inches longer than the original pipe. Drill a few 1/8 to 1/4-inch drainage holes through this pipe and hold it from the center while filling it with soil.
Finally, plant strawberries in the holes made on the sides of the planter. For stability, stuff straw through the holes to hold it all in place. Add water at the top until its rightly moist. Fill the irrigation pipe with water, wait until it is absorbed into the soil, and repeat. This rids of the air pockets in dry soil and will stay there after the air pockets are gone.
Viola! A homemade PVC strawberry planter has been made and is used.
