This one is a play directly out of Paul Gautschi’s book.
We planted 12 strawberry plants around a dogwood tree in spring 2017. The plants all doubled if not tripled and we had tremendous success with their growth of new runners and leaves.
- We planted in mostly shade,
- We wood chip mulched the bed 5 months prior to planting
- We planted about 1/3 of the bed with borage for increased bee activity and companion planting
This is now November 3, 2017, and I’m mulching the strawberry bed.
Here’s to praying it works out.
