Start with a decent size pot.
Drill drain holes on bottom of pot, unless yours has drain holes.
we used a 3inch drill hole adapter thing to make the holes on the side of the pot. There are 8 holes randomly around the pot.
Fill bottom with Lexi girls rocks.
Add a layer of soil that will go right up to the bottom of the first hole.
Stick in plant, View from the outside.
View from the inside. Continue layering.
I suppose this would have been even cheaper if i borrowed the drill hole thingingy from my dad but i didn't want to wait. LOL. i used some organic plant food inside, it was on sale at Menard's and cheaper then regular plant food and people are saying organic is better for us. I also used organic strawberry plants from Menard's as well, they were 3 bucks a piece. the others were 2.49 but they didn't look as great as the others. All in all i used 12 strawberry plants.
The reason i decided on making this is because all the strawberry pots i found were ceramic and ranged from $25 to $30 and they looked breakable if they were dropped or knocked over by a certain 3 year old.
The drill piece, pot, bottom part of the pot and plant food all cost $25.00. I had soil in my garage from previous years. I used one big bag of soil. There was also a pot bigger then this but i thought it would be too big.
I also got this idea from a friend Amanda Few, she had her husband make one last year.
