Composting Strawberries


lordsong added on May 9, 2017 | Answered

Is a mix of manure and peat moss compost good for Ozark ever bearing strawberries in a raised bed garden? Also, is it best to lay down material in raised bed gardens to stop weed growth? I used it in one and some things are still growing through. Thanks so much!

Make sure the manure is well composted.
I would only use the peat if you have heavy compacted soil.
Clean straw or pine needles make excellent mulch for strawberries in the summer.
