Recently, Len and I got up at the crack of dawn on a Saturday to hit the yard sales. Much to my delight, at the first home I stumbled across a pottery strawberry pot for only fifty cents! Well, long story short, I had a nice chat with the genial homeowner and toted my prize to the car with plans formulating in my mind.
Strawberry pot planters can be used, as their name implies, to plant strawberry plants. They are also beautiful planted with annuals, perennials or succulents. Since I had a group of succulents bought on sale waiting on the Garden Room deck, I knew this would be a succulent planter project.
For this project, you will need builder’s sand, potting soil (or compost), a variety of succulents and the strawberry pot. Follow the directions below to make a beautiful custom planter that would cost an arm and a leg at the nursery. Since I had pots of plants that could be divided and my fifty-cent pot, this whole project cost about ten dollars. That is less than the pot would cost by itself new!
