    Birds

I really love this idea, I am worried about the birds.  I don't have

a distraction for them with another fruit tree.  I will have to think on what I can do. 

Possibly netting.

 

Love the idea though

This is spectacular – hadn’t seen it before.  I note it was posted in 2017 – how has it worked out long term?  Any experience to share?

would need ALOT more water, and alot of added fertility as there is just not enough soil in those tiny troughs to have a living soil environment to provide all that the plants will need, especially with the amount of berries shown.  That would need close to aquaponic inputs

yes – I wonder if that’s what it is.  Mind you, people do grow strawberries in the oddest places, like vertical pipes with holes for the plant, etc.  They don’t get much soil there either.  Ours are currently sprawling all over some pretty unforgiving ground, and still berrying.  Tough little things.
