Strawberries and raised beds
I ordered 200 day neutral strawberries and am thinking of
using the mulch layer we got used on craigs list last year to plant them in a raised bed with black plastic and using an irrigation line down the middle. I have read planting
8 inches staggered is ok for day neutrals but will instead go every 12 inches to get the water tape closer to the plants, any one plant day neutrals that can give insight as to how many years one can get out of strawberries planted this way? not sure how to run a new water line tape under the plastic after a winter or two,,,, will play it by ear somewhat I expect.
Thanks for any insigt planting strawberries this is a first for us.
