Growing Strawberries Upside Down – The Planting

I used a mixture of MiracleGro and SuperSoil for the potting soil.  Nothing too fancy. The upside down planter was another Handy Trends© planter, this time a strawberry one.

It has nine holes around the bag to place the strawberry plants in, I only had six strawberry plants to put in it but I figure that just leaves them a little more room to grow. =)  Like the tomato plants, they were very easy to put through the holes.

One thing I didn’t like about these generic planters was that they couldn’t stand up by themselves.  I solved this by putting in a 2 inch layer of potting soil.  Still, they definitely aren’t as good as the Topsy Turvy planters.
