DIY video showing how to break down a wood pallet and transform it into a strawberry pallet planter. A great way to grow food in containers!
One of my most popular projects is on how to transform a pallet into a strawberry pallet planter. I put the project together some years ago and since then it’s had thousands of views, loads of comments, and more than a handful of readers email me pictures of their own work. The article I wrote for it seems to get most of the construction points across but since I wanted to build another planter for myself I thought I’d video the process this time to help you out.
The strawberry pallet planter project needs only a single pallet, some hand and power tools, and a couple of hours on a sunny afternoon. If you’re lucky enough to have a workshop then it will be even easier to find the right time to build it. The idea behind the container is that you can plant up the top as well as the spaces between the side slats with strawberry plants. I’ve made perhaps six of these planters over the years and they can last several years.
How to Make a Strawberry Pallet Planter
I have full written instructions for how to make a strawberry pallet planter and a piece sharing how to plant it. Though I designed this container specifically for strawberries, I’ve also grown tomatoes, herbs, lettuces, and a lot more vegetables in them too. You could even make a pallet planter without open slats on the sides to plant through. These are particularly good deep planters that I’ve even had success growing carrots in.
