overwintering strawberries and grapevine
I also posted on the Rocky Mountains forum.
I have a huge raised bed of strawberries, and have read to put a heavy layer of straw over the top of the plants to winter them over. Is that all there is to it - just layer straw on top? Anything else I should do? Should I wrap black plastic around the raised bed to help hold in heat?
Also have a grape vine in a wine barrel and not sure what to do with it. It's a Valiant grape but I know it wont' make it through the winter?
Any help would be GREAT!
