How to create a tower of fresh strawberries when you have no space.

4" dia PVC pipe
4" dia PVC pipe end cap
1" dia PVC pipe
1" dia PVC pipe end cap
1/4" Drill
2" dia Hole Saw

2" dia Hole Saw to produce planting pockets in 4" dia PVC pipe.
Drill 1/4" dia holes randomly through the length of 1" dia PVC pipe to maximize watering.
Fit end caps to bottom of both pipes and drill just a couple of 1/4" holes in end caps to aid with drainage.
Locate and secure tower to wall, railings, etc.
Start to fill with compost and plant strawberries as each planting pocket level is reached.
Water well until plants are established, then water and feed on a regular basis.
Enjoy your fresh strawberries.
