overwintering/bringing on strawberry plants
This was such a bad summer with the month long rain and lack of sunshine that I have only now got around to preparing a few strawberry plants into plastic pots.
They don't have as much roots on them as I would like and I am improvising to make them keep on growing ,making roots and leaves if at all possible. (I have no greenhouse ,heated or otherwise)
I am placing them on the top of a pile of warm stable manure that is against an East facing wall .I also cover them with fleece (US= Remay).
Around 3pm I move them to a South facing wall nearby to get the evening sun- and move them back to the manure heap for the night and following morning
Will I have suuccess in doing any of this?
Would it help to position some aluminium foil behind/ around to capture extra sunlight?
I know I am being boneheaded and also stingy as I could just buy extra plants but even then theyb woulld probably not do much for me until the following year...
