The pan strawberry tub and net covering....
I bought one of these strawberry tubs quite a few years ago, as i thought they would be a great way to grow strawberries.
The prices have changed a lot as i think i paid £19.99 .they are now around the £30 - £40 mark depending on where you buy one. I would also suggest that if you are definately want to buy one, then buy one at the end of the season, when they are reduced in price.
Intially i thought it was great, as it 'looked' good in the corner of the garden, but in reality... it is just a gimmick, and an expensive one at that, as by the time you buy the container and the strawberry plants to plant in it... it will take you forever and a day for it to actually pay for itself, with the amount of fruit you yeild...
The tube is just one piece of hard plastic which you roll into a tube shape... there is little fasteners which you push through pre-shaped holes.. there is also a plastic tube that goes in the centre, so you can water the plants from inside the tub.
After buying one of these strawberry tubes i personally would not recommend one , i think you are better off using cheaper containers, or putting the strawberries straight into your garden..
as at the end of the day, you can still get yummy tasting strawberries for any old pot you plant them in.
