I want to put some Strawberry plants in my
Strawberry Jar pot. I'm not
sure how to add the dirt and then the strawberry
plant. Do you have some directions? Thanks a bunch.

Start by adding a layer of rocks or pot shards over the bottom drain hole. Then add regular potting soil, up to the level of the lowest opening. Decide which plant goes where, carefully unpot and poke the roots into the pocket, firm soil around the roots (from the inside of the pot), then add more soil to the level of the second row of pockets. Continue until the entire jar is planted. Water well to settle the soil, and replace any soil that washes out of the pockets. Keep the oil in the pot moist and enjoy your harvest!
