How to Make Your Own Strawberry Tower

If you have been reading studio ‘g’ for a while, you might remember one of my first ever posts.  It was about a strawberry tower that I was crushing on (and nearly two years later, I still am).  That tower seemed like it would forever be out of my reach because the 6 ft version is over $600 (including shipping).  But patience is a virtue…because, I have now found the very same (though in treated wood rather than cedar) tower for less than half the price here…..and also I have found instructions for making your own here.… I am hoping that some handy man (husband, dad, grandpa?) in my life will be inclined to build me one of these for Mother’s day (or maybe my birthday?) –  my strawberries need to be moved to the protective confines of my vegetable garden.  I am simply tired of sharing my beautiful fruit with Mr. Woodchuck and Madam deer.

  1. I think if I was going to make it, I would make the base smaller. It seems to me that the design you linked to will require a lot more potting soil than the strawberries really need, which can get expensive.

  2. beautiful! It would be gorgeous with wave petunias, too.
    Would you water it with a sprinkler on top? Or snake some soaker hose through it before the dirt, and leave a connector?
    I can picture it with a spinning owl or hawk on top to keep birds away. Chipmunks eat berries too. But they are cuter. I leave the wild strawberries for them.

My garden is entering the overwhelming stage.  These pics don’t share the full extent of the harvest…I edited to fit the frame….I am grateful that the Farmers Market starts this weekend.   I am late to the party (as always) but I’m sharing this as part of Daniels Post Produce Round Up — perhaps you…

Garden Party

Despite the rain, I am busy readying my home and garden to welcome friends and family for a rocking garden/ barn party this evening. It is my birthday next week, so we are celebrating.  Are you hosting any garden parties this summer?  I wrote over on Apartment Therapy earlier this week about tips to help…
