Description

Enjoy fresh berries without crawling around in the dirt

You will receive 20 young bare root plant starts and 2 Growin' Bags.

Well, we can't persuade Mother Nature to start growing strawberries on trees, but our Growin' Bags may just be the next best thing for bringing your sweet, plump berries to eye level. Just try them with Park's Whopper Strawberry plants—winter-hardy, heavy-bearing, and so delicious—and you'll find out just how easy "vertical gardening" can really be.

Who says you have to crawl around in the dirt to grow great strawberries? Give your back and knees a break—and your eyes a treat—by growing your berries against the patio wall, dangling from a post or hook, or in any other "vertical" location you choose. Just fill the reusable, almost indestructible Growin' Bags with potting soil, set a Park's Whopper Strawberry plant in each of the 10 holes along the side of the bag, water it well to get the roots going, and hang it in any sunny spot. It's just that easy!

Growing berries off the ground makes a lot of sense. You get to enjoy the lovely white blooms that appear before the fruit. And when the berries emerge, they stay cleaner, are less prone to rot and nibbling insects, and are free to develop full, perfectly formed shapes—no flat white side. You get a ton of berries in a compact space. Big fruits, worthy of the Park's Whopper name, arrive in early summer on cold-hardy plants that are just as at home in the Northeast as in the Deep South.

To get you started on the strawberry patch—or should we say "pole"—of your dreams, we've got 20 delicious, heavy-bearing Whopper strawberry plants plus 2 Growin' Bags. Just add soil, water, and a hearty appetite.

Growin' Bag Dimensions:

With the hanging handle: approximately 28 1/2" H x 8 1/2" W
Without the hanging handle: approximately 21 1/2" H x 8 1/2" W
Fluid Volume: approximately 1.59 US Gallons
Each Growin' Bag contains 10 slits

I will get more put in garage and they made it thru the winter except the bottom 2 plants in the growing bag. Live in NE. Ohio and it got down to -12 planted some others in a vertical planter a 6 inch plastic drain pipe but now heat is my enemy did get 50 plants in a 8 foot pipe =50 foot row experiment have to really water them gets too hot. Going to try them 25 in a 6 inch drain pipe and see if they work. This is better than ground planting the bags take it. When close to ready move somewhere that the robins can't find them or cover with burlap works so far. Our last extreme hot springs the past 10 have me convinced that this is better way to go the Park's Whopper and the growing bags.

Waiting...

I agree with another review - the growing bags are not great. I received my plants in the second week of March, really too early for planting in Western NC, but instructions said to plant asap and website indicated I would not receive until the time was right for planting in my area, so... I've lost about six of the plants and the others are hanging on, but not doing much growing. Have to see what happens in the coming months
