Growing strawberries is easy, but it is more convenient when you can do so in space-saving rain gutter planters! Not to mention, the flavour of home-grown strawberries can never compare to store-bought strawberries.
Rain gutters can be mounted to the side of decks, or vertically to the side of your house or shed to create a “strawberry wall.” A rain gutter about 4 and a half feet long is enough to grow 3-4 strawberry plants, depending on plant size.
These rain gutters not only keep pests away, but they make for much easier gardening!
