I just started my first strawberry barrel early February. I used a 65 gallon used wine barrel. I drilled out 25 1 3/4" inch holes on the side. Planted a total of 30 strawberry plants(5 ontop). I used 15 Puget Reliance and 15 Aroma. Obviously I punched holes in the bottom for drainage, added gravel, used a drilled through PVC for irrigation to the lower plants and filled the irriagation pipe with sand.
Anyways just wanted to share my project and hopefully see some other similar projects.
