I'm pretty good at growing most things but I suck at growing strawberries. I'm not sure what I do wrong but they never seem to do very well.
Working at a friends house today I think I saw the answer.
|Strawberries in guttering|
I know growing plants in guttering isn't new but I thought this was a great use of space and at "toddler" hight a great way for children to pick their own.

There were loads of strawberries ready to eat and I imagine it's far easier to control any runners or weeds and watering would be straight forward!
I might have to try this on our fence at the front of the house next year and see if we can grow a few more berries this way. I've got some old guttering saved from a job back in the winter that would be ideal for it.
Anyone else been growing in this way or similar?
