Should I protect young strawberry plants from cold?
I just planted 30 bare root strawberry plants in a raised bed two days ago in the RDU area. Now the weather has dropped down to around 38 degrees and raining. I put a blanket over the bed (laid over a protective chicken wire cover) last night and took it off this morning. Do you think I need to put something over the plants in the daytime too until this nasty weather passes?
