The Q&A Archives: Strawberry Mulch

Question: What is the best type of mulch for strawberry plants to keep down the weeds and retain moisture in my raised beds?

Answer: I prefer to use straw in my strawberry beds. There are no small particles to splash onto the berries so they stay cleaner, and the straw allows a place for the runners to root, but makes it easy for me to remove the new little plants and put them where I want them to grow.
