Growing Strawberry Plants

04 Jun 11 (Australia - temperate climate)
Start a 2-3 sections compost bed. We have clay and always add some gypsom before we plant in a new area. Compost and mulch, when it breaks down, is really good. It takes time to build up good soil, but if you have good sun and install some drip irrigation ( not all that expensive if you do it slowly) you will find your vegies growing really well. Suggest raised beds also. We used pine ( unfortunately treated) and then one can build up the soil gradually, layer by layer. Crop rotation is also what we try to do. It's a learning curve for most of us. Don't give up. Just keep working on the soil. Good luck. JVK
