Got my strawberries in yesterday from Burgess. Had read some questionable reviews about them but took a chance anyway. Took three weeks to get my order but they came in good shape and all plants look alive. 10 Goliath, 25 Quinalt, 25 Ft. Laramie, 25 Ozark Beauty. Since they were from dirt planting I had to wash the roots and pruned to about 4-5".
Didn't have room in the gutter rows for all of them so made this tube like the All Season Fruits guy except used the foam plugs from the 1/4" pipe insulation, filled with perlite. The 3/4" holes were cut with a drill & hole saw and plugs set in at a slight upward angle like grizzman suggested. The 25 Ft. Laramie plants are 6" apart with holes staggered. It took 2 gallon of water to saturate the perlite to drain and drained almost a full gallon over about 30 minutes so there's a gallon still in there!
In the bottom there's a cereal bowl siliconed in with drain holes drilled. Hangs from the roof joist and drains into a 5 gal bucket.
I ordered 100 more with a couple different varieties for the outdoor fence project...
