Self watering containers

Although I was hesitant to do so I transplanted my strawberries into the self watering containers I outlined in my post of May 5, 2009.

The move did not bother them in the least, and in fact they are doing much better in these containers. It may be that they enjoy a consistent environment. When they were in the plain pot I would heft the pot to test the weight, and if it felt light I added nutrients.

The plant in the photo has been in the container for five days, and the reservoir is still at the level of the initial filling.

These self watering containers seem to be working really well at this point.
