I have always had strawberries off Kate's patch as she has a huge amount of plants in the ground which are way too many for her and her partner to eat alone so I have always had some wonderful pickings off them. Anyway this year Kate has decided to reduce the size of her patch as she would like to get a shed and salad patch going. This will be a great idea for her but it also means that IF I want strawberries I will have to plant my own. Now it's STRAWBERRIES people...how can any sane person go a season without them so of course I want some...and Kate has even said I can have runners from her so I will be eating the same delicious strawberries.
So why do I need your help??
Basically I'm not sure the best place to plant them!! I have narrowed it down to two locations but can't decide which might be for the best....So if you all let me know what you think and maybe a reason why...it might help me to make a final decision.
Ok, so I have narrowed it down to this side of the allotment. As you know I have the shed and fruit bushes at the top end and below are the raspberry canes which are planted at the bottom end. What I don't know is which end to put in the strawberries. I think there are probably pro's and cons to each side so a little input on my readers thoughts might really help here.
So there you have it,,,this is my present quandary which I really would like some help with....I'm not really bothered why you pick a side...just pick one and let me know....maybe it could end up going to a vote. I just know that January will soon draw to a close and I have to make a decision so that I can get the ground prepared before Kate starts digging up those wonderful plants!!
