Strawberry Tower

Last year my Strawberries did very well in a Wicking Box even though it leaked where I had the water level tubing but I was disappointed when Portuguese Millipedes kept getting to them before I did. I decided to make a tower using PVC pipe figuring they wouldn’t manage to climb up it. I had more than enough Strawberries for 2 towers but made one then decided to see if it worked before making the second one.

Now that there is fruit on the plants in Tower 1, I’ve made Tower 2. Even if the millipedes manage to climb up I’ll be able to see them easily and I can put a few snail bait pellets in the saucer where the dogs won’t be able to get them.
