They are called strawberry planters, those containers with multiple openings that allow you to plant several specimens in a single pot. I imagine that the origin of the name was because this type of planter was designed for strawberries, but there is no reason why they cannot be used for other plants too. This article which I found on the Garden Lovers Club website describes eighteen plants that grow great in a strawberry planter.
Who says that you always have to grow strawberries in your strawberry jar?
While it might seem a little counter-intuitive to plant other things in your strawberry jars, they?re actually well-suited to creating herb gardens or small, but colorful floral arrangements for your patio or porch.
The ?pockets? of a strawberry jar are an excellent place to corral different types of flowers, and mixing shorter plants with drooping vines or succulents can help cover the terracotta pot itself.
Strawberry jars are versatile enough to serve as herb gardens, succulent gardens, container gardens with lots of flowers, or even as a combination of the three.
Herb gardens in particular do well in strawberry planters because of the small pockets. The pockets help keep some herbs from spreading too much and taking over your herb garden.
Small annual and perennial flowers also do well in container gardens, especially if they are heat or drought resistant.
So let?s break free of only planting strawberries in a strawberry jar, and create stunning container gardens filled with flowers, shrubs, and herbs!
