What does a strawberry planter need? Well, it needs to be able to hold soil and have holes in it to plant the strawberries. This IKEA basket is intended to store used grocery bags and be mounted on a wall. But when I saw it, my plant brain saw a vertical planter!

    I live in Minnesota and I don't think I have easy access to moss. Is there something else I can use instead of moss?
