Do you mulch your strawberries?
I read to use black plastic, then in another article it said don't use BP because the soil s/b cool for strawberries.
Then I read use newspaper (which would be easier, anyway, since I didn't mulch prior to planting, which would be a total b%$& if I were using BP).
I see that the Wisconsin something-or-other shows a pic of shredded NP as winter mulch, and it's applied 4-5 inches thick.
Help me out on the how-to of this. I guess I def need weed control here, and shredded seems 'handy' as a mulch, but what keeps it from blowing away? Should I just use 4-5 SHEETS thick to keep weeds under control and toss some rocks on to hold it in place?
