The pyramids make attractive structures for growing your favorite flowers, too. Place one on each side of your driveway.

are the largest of the strawberries. These berries produce "runners" and spread over
a large area. If you plant them in the towers you see above, they'll eventually spread
to the ground and produce an area with even more plants. I take the runners and replant
