Today I trimmed the “ugliess” from the strawberry tower, filled in the washed-away areas in the soil with compost, sprinkled slug bait and planted the runners.
Now I must decide, do I cover the tower with straw as usual or do I wrap it in a frost blanket.
The straw works well but is a real mess to remove in the spring. Would the blanket work just as well? I would love your opinion, please comment.
