There is a great tutorial on Chesapeake Crafts (chesapeakecrafts.com) on building a strawberry tower planter. It would make a good planter for a variety of flowers and herbs as well and would really look good in the middle of a garden.
The site has links where you can download plans for the towers. The towers are made from wood and building them seem easy especially with pictures at every step. I like the one with a sprinkler on top. It looks really unique but has a very practical use as well. There are tips on growing strawberries including information on the different varieties you can plant. I think the site is just perfect for strawberry lovers and everyone else who loves gardening.
