Anybody ever do this? looks more practical than the standard strawberry pot which is not at all practical, especially considering the waterin problems.

What kind of grow bags were you using? They are just bags that hold the soil. The plants don't know if they are in a bag or a pot.

Some of them that were sold at home depot . I will never again use a topsy turvy to grow tomatoes either . I have had far better success using dwarf tomatoes in pots and getting tons of tomatoes and oh the taste .

I noticed at lowes they had a multi-level pot for growing strawberries... marketed as an all-in-one ready to go purchase. I think I'll give it a try.
