How to Make a Better Strawberry Planter using Pallet Wood

Use a wooden pallet to make a Strawberry Pallet Planter, a garden container that you can use to grow a dozen or more strawberry plants.. One that I see time and again is the idea of using a single wooden pallet as a strawberry planter.. To make a strawberry pallet planter, you’ll need a pallet that has spaces between the slats.. The two end pieces will be the sides of your planter and the middle piece is the bottom.. You should have three to four of these pieces of plank that were removed from the back of the pallet.. The bottom planks for each of the shorter sides can be created by re-using the bits of wood you cut off the side pieces in step two.. Although optional, it’s a good idea to add feet to your strawberry pallet planter.. There are two ways that I’ve added feet to my planters — using bricks or creating wooden feet from the spacers removed from the pallet during the build.. To plant the strawberry pallet planter you’ll need to first line the planter, fill it with a good potting mix, and as you do that, you’ll plant the strawberry plants.

Vaping has seen a massive surge in popularity in the UK, and whilst overall this is a positive change for public health, there have been concerns surrounding if (and how) this will affect underage use of e-cigarettes. We unpack the statistics from a recent Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) report, and deliver the reality on underage vaping in the UK.

As far as vaping awareness goes, an overwhelming majority of 77.7% of teenagers surveyed had never tried vaping at all and 10.5% aren’t even aware of what e-cigarettes are .. Even amongst those at the legal vaping age (18 years old) around 30.1% had tried an e-cigarette.. While vaping has been reported as 95% less harmful than smoking by Public Health England for some time now, only 43.8% of 11 to 18 year olds believe that e-cigarettes are safer than smoking.. While teenage use of e-cigarettes has remained relatively low, an important consideration is where they’re getting them from and why they’re trying vaping in the first place.. When surveying 15 year olds, they found throughout Yorkshire and Humber, 10% vaped once a week while 12% vaped “occasionally”.. Of the underage users trying vaping for the first time, less than a quarter (29.3%) vaped without having ever smoked a cigarette as of 2021, up from 18.3% back in 2014.
