DIY PVC Tube Vertical Strawberry Planters

Do you want fresh strawberries right from your own backyard? Why not build this vertical strawberry planter? This vertical strawberry planter are made of PVC pipes and won’t take you much space. It is quite easy to build these DIY PVC tube vertical strawberry planters. What you will need are

  • An electric drill with a hole cutting bit that will cut a 5 – 7cm hole
  • A 2 or 3mm drill bit for the watering pipe
  • A length of PVC down pipe 100mm or 150mm diameter. (The length will equal the height of the unit)
  • End cap for the down pipe
  • A narrower diameter (15mm or thereabouts) length of down pipe for watering. Make it about 8 – 10cm longer than the down pipe. If you have a pressurised irrigation system, you can use a length of soak hose instead
  • A cork
  • A knife
  • Duct tape
  • A length of geotextile (or hessian would do) for wrapping the watering pipe
  • Twine for tying the fabric to the watering tube
  • Good fertile soil (test it if you can – strawbs prefer it slightly acidic)
  • 1 litre or so of coarse gravel
  • Strawberry plants (I used a mixture of different varieties)
  • A few companion plants (nasturtiums or marigolds)
  • Large tub or box (to stand unit in whilst filling)
  • Fixing collar or ties
  • Step by step instructions from urban green space
