Watering Your Strawberry Jars

Getting your strawberry jars established with the soil intact can be challenging. I have tried various methods, such as using some coir (coconut fiber) or sphagnum moss around the transplants to hold the soil in the ports. The best method I've found is to inset a watering pipe into the center of the container as follows:

Ric, this does work very well. I have used this method before with strawberry jars. I also sometimes take my strawberry jars and submerge them in a 5 gallon can of water for 3-5 minutes and let them absorb water. Then I just remove the jar and replace it into it's saucer. This also works well for me. I always keep my pots in drip saucers. The water runs straight brought, but the drip tray catches it and then it can slowly absorb back up into the soil.
