Strawberry Plant Irrigation
Strawberry pots may be attractive, but they’re inefficient for the growth and health of the plants. To make sure the strawberry plants are properly watered:
- Insert a section of PVC pipe in the center of the planter.
- Add soil and compost in the pot around the pipe.
- Fill the pipe with coarse horticultural gravel.
- Pull the pipe out of the planter, leaving the gravel behind.
This creates a French drain in the center of the pot to allow the water to penetrate evenly throughout the pot.
