Vertical PVC Pipe?

charlielittle(7)February 26, 2008

Hi vertical folks. I mostly am at the hydroponic forum and just was wondering if any of you have ever or know of anyone growing plants right out of the side of standing PVC pipe through holes drilled in the sides of it?

HGTV instructions for building a vertical pipe planter. Guess it does work!

I guess I was meant to see the posts here. Especially the strawberry one. I have been wondering all summer, so far, as to how I could make something like one of those clay strawberry pots. They are to expensive to buy. I have sort of an idea I was trying to figure using those black pots that the nursery's use. There is one in town that has a recycle bin of pots and I wanted to use them - FREE!! Now I know what I am going to do. However, I think I will use the black weeping hose thingy to see if it will work. I started with a couple of plants about 4 years ago and they have taken over my veggie garden, a more or less vacant spot, and a flower garden. Last year I pulled up all the ones in the veggie garden, or so I thought. They were back this year without any help from me.

Absolutely, plants do grow vertically out of the sides of containers including PVC. I've seen several different types of containers that allow plants to grow out of the sides.

There's another thread about strawberries that goes into more detail for those interested:

I got my hands on a 8" diameter pipe that holds 24 plants now, but i think next year i will add another 20 holes or so.
