A couple weeks ago while I was on YouTube, I came across this video from Dzung of Honeysuckle Catering. It was a two-part video in which she and a friend shared tips for planting a cute little strawberry planter and then made strawberry ice cream in a plastic baggie. I mean, what’s not to love.
Fast forward to last week at HomeGoods where I found this beautiful shallow cement pot and thought, “I should make one of those strawberry planters!”
I debated whether to post about this since I’m completely stealing the idea. Planting strawberries in a pot is not a revolutionary concept, but when I questioned if it was post-worthy, a friend asked, “Why wouldn’t it be!?!” So here I am today, showing you the fine art of putting plants into soil.
Can you tell that I’m waiting impatiently for the weather to warm up around here? Monday I taught you how to propagate succulents (and offered a $200 Lowe’s gift card to one lucky IBS reader. If you haven’t already entered to win, don’t forget to do so here.). Now I’m back with more planting.
I just thought this was such a fun way to dive into spring. I’m not sure where this bowl will end up, but I think it will be great outdoors on a table or just tucked in with some of my other plantings. Who knows. I also have this crazy notion to host a strawberry-themed mini party. All things strawberry! So maybe the strawberry pot will come in handy then.
Anyway, check out Dzung’s video for all of the ins and outs of strawberry planting (and the homemade ice cream recipe). The process is pretty simple. In a nutshell: put soil in a bowl, add some strawberry plants, and place the bowil in the sun.
In a few weeks (or however long it takes to grow strawberries), you’re going to need some recipes, right? Well, I’ve got you covered! Check out a few of my favorite IBC strawberry-inspired recipes below:
