Making a Strawberry Planter from a Laundry Basket

Even if you purchase everything new, this is not an expensive project. I found the laundry basket at the curb, got the potting soil and burlap on sale, and traded plants with a neighbor.

When the season is over, store this in the garage. The berries will go dormant and fruit next year. You may have to have to replace the top plants. I plan to winter sow the top plants next year.

Total Time: 30 to 45 minutes

Yield: 1 planter

Source: Garden group I belong to

Supplies:

  • 1 laundry basket
  • burlap to line the basket
  • scissors
  • potting soil
  • plants for the top
  • 1 Tbsp sugar

Steps:

  1. Punch holes in the bottom of the basket for drainage.
  2. Line the basket with the burlap.
  3. Fill with potting soil.
  4. Cut holes in the burlap and thread your plants through. Bury in the soil.
  5. Arrange plants on the front and sides. If you are placing against a wall or fence you don't need to do the back.
  6. Trim off the excess burlap.
  7. Add more potting soil if necessary. Plant your choice of flowers on top.
  8. Water in. My berry plants were a little wilted, so my neighbor suggested adding a tablespoon of sugar to my watering can to ease the shock of transplanting.
