Moving my strawberries
I haven't been happy with my strawberries growing in my main veggie garden. I got a few nice berries last year but mostly they were small and we never got a nice crop from them.
So this year I am starting over with new plants, new type of bed/planter, and a new (sunnier) location. Questions...
Can anyone recommend a favorite variety for the northeast/mid-atlantic (zone 6 apparently, thought we were a zone 5). I don't think I have a preference between June-bearing or ever-bearing, although it would be nice to have berries all summer long rather than just one crop and done.
I'm slightly concerned with my new location. I had a couple of pepper plants over there last year and now I'm reading about verticillium wilt. They won't be in the same soil - I'm planning on planting in a couple of pallets and propping them up at a 45 degree angle. Think they'll be okay since they aren't sharing the same soil that the peppers were in last year?
