I've always had an aversion to strawberry pots, the shape and the pockets. I find them vulgar. Yes I know, it's a weird opinion but it's mine. So imagine how surprised I was when I spotted this chartreuse number at Crate & Barrel and had to have it. Had to.
My attraction is to the cylinder shape, so different than the usual bulbous outline. So what to plant in it?
This root bound mass of Agave 'Baja' goodness was only $9.99 at Means Nursery.
I cut into the root-ball...
And then cut apart the agaves.
They're pupping fools!
The harvest, 14 plants (which works out to a mere 72 cents each)! I tossed the tiny pups, most of them broke into pieces during the separation.
Planting was easy, I just tucked the small ones in the pockets and filled it up with soil to the next level, repeat.
And saved the largest for the top.
In fact I wish I could have bought another, but I as it was I got the last one.
