I’ve just put together a strawberry planter, and on the top I have common sage, peppermint, and some stevia. Will these herbs affect the taste of the strawberries? E.g. the stevia makes the berries sweeter… Thanks :]

I’m apparently going to be staying in my apartment for another year and I want to have a "Garden" at my own home this year.

My neighbor is a jacka*s and so I can’t actually dig and have a garden in the ground.

Pots are really expensive and I don’t want to use 5 gallon buckets because they look bad so I was thinking about getting large diameter PVC/CPVC Pipes cut at different heights then blocking the bottom with some kind of plastic netting so that the soil doesn’t run out the bottom with the rain, and then planting pepper plants, herbs, etc. in them.

I think that the white of the pipes will look like Modern Art along the back fence.

The base would allow for proper drainage for the soil, would keep the heat in from the sun, but I’m wondering how much room would, say, a cherry tomato plant need?

I was thinking that I could do the tall pipes for the big plants and then a 2nd row of much smaller diameter pipes in front of those for small plants like herbs and strawberries.

What do you think?
