No dig diary, 26th March 2021

The no dig strawberry bed is now complete!

I went through all the runners that we rooted last year and picked out the ones that were already showing signs of life, planting them down the left and centre of the bed in the photo below. I then broke the original plants out of the growbags they were in and planted them down the right hand side.

There are about thirty runners that aren’t showing any sign of life yet, though it’s certainly early in the season, so I’ve brought them all into the greenhouse where I can look after them properly and I’ll see what happens. If many do burst into life then I’ll have to find somewhere new to plant them out, and perhaps make another no-dig bed for next year.
