The right tools for the jobI highly suggest using a "Forstner" drill bit instead of a hole saw, since it drills out the entire 2" hole, instead of cutting out a circle.
Here's the least expensive one I could find on Amazon.
(If you use my link I may make a few cents.)
🛑✋Don't use a hole saw drill bit, like I did -- you'll have to pry each piece of PVC out of the drill bit with a screwdriver, plus it jerks really hard and you'll probably cut yourself like I almost did repeatedly.
Choosing the right potting soilAs with all container gardens, choosing a good quality potting soil is key! My favorite is a local product called New Earth Top Shelf Potting Soil. If you're in Texas you can pick it up at your neighborhood H-E-B for around $5 per bag. The quality is AMAZING, especially for the price, and it's organic!
Be sure to throw in some bone meal when you plant your strawberries.
