Posted on 28 April 2020
What are Strawberry and Herb Planters:
The Haxnicks Strawberry & Herb Planter is a large patio planter (40 Litres) that has 8 planting pockets for your strawberries and herbs to grow from. It comes in a pack of two so you can have one for your strawberries and one for your herbs. Or use both for strawberries if you love them as much as we do!
What crop are they for:
Any type of strawberries from small alpine ones to lovely big English summer strawberries. Herbs such as thyme, chives, basil, mint - whatever you use most of. You could even plant Cut and Come Again leaves at the top and strawberry and herbs plants in the pockets to make the most of the growing space.
Where can I use them:
You can use them wherever you have 35cm x 35cm of spare space! So just outside the back door, in a sunny spot by the shed, on your balcony or in your back yard.
What's so special about it?
The planter keeps you precious crop of strawberries up off the ground away from all but the most determined slugs and snails. A simple Slug-Buster trap will prevent the rest making the climb) The spacing of the pockets mean that all the plants get enough air and light and you don't end up having to scrabble round on the floor to pick your fruit. It is also easily moveable so you can simply turn it to ensure that all the fruit gets its share of the sun.
