Generous and sturdy terracotta planter specifically designed for growing strawberries, but also useful for growing herbs.

Features six planting pockets to keep ripening fruit off the ground and improve circulation, reducing pest damage and disease.

The extra-wide neck also allows planting of an additional five plants up top, letting you enjoy a bumper harvest from a very modest growing space.

Although inspired by the terraces of Tuscany, the pots are thrown in Turkey by Argun and his son, 3rd and 4th generation potters from the Izmir region on the Aegean coast. Made using local clay, the pots will age to a wonderful patina as the salts slowly leach to the surface.

Each pot is fired to 1080 degrees C to make it as frost resistant as possible; however we would always suggest moving empty or full pots into a sheltered spot in the colder months.

As they are individually thrown by hand, the pots will vary slightly in height and diameter from batch to batch, so please be aware the measurements below are approximate. Supplied with drainage holes.

Measurements:
Ø45cm x H60cm

A very attractive addition to the patio (and a brilliant slug-stopper)!

Really looking forward to planting it up with strawberries. It's looked good over winter planted with pansies. I bought a second one for me and another for a friend

Advice on watering strawberry tubs please Hello I bought one of the strawberry tubs shown on your website. I have assembled it and put in the plants. There is a water tube going down the middle of the tub, which waters from the inside all the plants along the length of the tub. When watering, do I fill the tube fully and how often should I do this? I have put the tub in a plastic greenhouse. I would be grateful for your assistance. Thank you Clifford

Clifford Sullivan

Hello Clifford, When watering you can fill this tube up to the top, but then you must let all the excess water drain away from the bottom of the pot. This should be repeated as and when the compost in the planter gets quite dry. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Strawberry maintenance Hi, This summer we planted lots of strawberry plants in pots. We got quite a few strawberries. What do we do now the seasons ended? Many Thanks, Penny

Micklewright, Penny

Hello There, You dont really need to do anything. The strawberry plants will die back in winter and you can then remove any dead foliage. Carry on feeding them for the next couple of weeks and make sure they are watered, but you can cut this right back throughout the winter. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
