How To Protect Strawberry Patch From Heat And Cold

Question From: A. Clawson - MICHIGAN
Q: Nancy, I have quite a large strawberry patch in my backyard. Until two years ago, it was doing well. Then we started to have very hot summers that just about wiped it out even though I watered frequently. What is the best way to protect my strawberry patch from the hot summer and cold winter weather? Thanks.


Proper pruning and, mulching with organic material will help. Go to the section on strawberries at for more help. Best and Happy Yardening, Nancy
