Growing Strawberries In A Barrel

Before filling a strawberry barrel with compost stand
a piece of drainpipe or cardboard tube upright in the
centre and fill with pebbles. As you fill with compost
gradually remove the tube releasing the pebbles. This
will act as a central drainage system preventing the
soil from becoming waterlogged.
