Upside Down Berry Growing Is Making Waves

Why Upside Down Berry Growing Is The Wave of the Future

This past March I went to Disney World and took a ride on the "Living With the Land" ride where I saw what would be my first glimpse into upside down berry growing. It was awesome (the ride and the concepts it covered) and a week after I got home I saw a commercial for something called the Topsy Turvy -- an upside-down tomato growing pot. Then I saw they make one for strawberries and I bought it. My friends, I think my traditional berry growing days have become a thing of the past.

Why Upside Down Berry Growing?

The Strawberry Bag that I bought isn't necessarily "upside down" like the Topsy Turvy for tomatoes, but it's the same general concept. You put the strawberry plants in the bag, with the plants hanging out the side, and you grow more plants per square foot than you ever could with a traditional garden. You can get 15 strawberry plants in each bag, and it's easy to put three or four of these bags on a patio. That's 60 plants in barely any space. Quite impressive.

Where To Get It

So where can you get a Topsy Turvy strawberry bag for upside down berry growing? The Internet is the only place I've been able to find them. I got mine on Amazon.com for less than $20 including shipping. And while it does take a little getting used to (follow the directions carefully) growing your berries in the berry bag can get you an abundance of berries with minimal space requirements.

Bottom line? If you're limited on space or want to get the most berries possible with the space you have, definitely try upside down berry growing. It's a bit of an investment at first, but well worth it in the long run.
