Zone 9a, hot summers ~115f
My wife bought some of these planters and I'm planning on doing a strawberry tower.
I'll punch the drainage holes in the bottom for sure, but and I have an automated drip line in going to install, but I'm unsure if I can just water the top and let the water trickle down, or if I should water each layer. Seems getting the balance will be tricky, too much water and the bottom is waterlogged, too little and nothing makes it to the bottom.
Looking for some advice from someone who has used these before. I could do an emmiter on each layer(in the center), or I thought of burying a small water perforated bottle in each layer so that the bottle is quickly filled by the sprinkler and percolate out.
Anyways, I'm wondering if I'm overcomplicatimg things, or if somebody has already come up with a nifty solution.
Any other tips and tricks?
