Wood chip mulch in strawberry bed....
I have newly planted (this spring) strawberry beds. both junebear and everbear. Plants are all looking healthy and growing. I plan on pinching flowers from the Junebears and letting the everbear do its thing (my 3 yr old wants strawberrys.....) My landscaper gave me a load of wood chips that I am using as mulch for my veggies. I currently have a light layer of hay in the strawberrys. Can I use the wood chips? It will certainly help with weeds but I am not sure how the runners will do on the junebears?
also, how thick a layer?
