I just finished building this!! I put some transplants in the top, then some bare root strawberries on the sides. I also have another strawberry plant in a raised bed that I’ll use to get runners and plant those in the tower.
I have a PVC pipe going down both sides. I’ll post updated pictures soon. I actually took this apart and made it into two smaller towers. It’s much easier to care for the plants at the top that way. I have bare root strawberries planted in the sides, but none of them have come out of dormancy yet.
I really like this, but I wouldn’t use bare root strawberries. Mine are still in dormancy. Not sure if they’re going to come out of it…
Here’s the current setup after I divided up my large tower into two smaller towers.
