Terracotta strawberry bed borders

Old terracotta tiles form a border for our new strawberry bed.

We were on a walk going through the small village of Domarget when we saw a very attractive potager garden on the banks of the river. The beds were all delineated with old  terracotta tiles and looked gorgeous. We knew we had a pile of old tiles behind the barn so set too creating our own tile border for the new strawberry patch made with runners from last years strawberries.

We are very pleased with the result and are in the process of doing some other beds this way.
