Readers make their own Strawberry Pallet Planters
My Strawberry Pallet Planter has gone Global
Five years ago I published a tutorial on how to convert a single wooden pallet into an attractive Strawberry Pallet Planter. Since then it’s gone viral and I’ve had a lot of emails from people who have made their own — some have even sent photos.
While I use mine just for planting up strawberries I’ve been amazed at the versatility and creativity used in your interpretations. Some have raspberries planted inside, and others have lettuce and potatoes. The design of the DIY planter gives you space to grow plants not only on top but also in the cracks between the pallet planks.

To learn how to make your own visit here for text instructions or watch the YouTube video above. Below are some examples of how others built and planted their own. I especially like the ones that are painted prettily — one even has wheels! Very handy for if you want to move it around the patio like this other Wheeled Pallet Planter.
The project takes an afternoon, requires just one wooden pallet, and a handful of tools. Make sure you check the stamp on the pallet you use to make sure that it hasn’t been treated with pesticides first. You can often find pallets in industrial estates or with shipping companies.
If you too have made a Strawberry Pallet Planter, please get in touch to share a photo. I’d love to feature your work and share with others just how easy these are to make!
