Last year we grew all our strawberries in beds at ground level, but a fair amount were eaten by something (probably slugs), so this time, encouraged by the amazing results we saw in Danny Kowalsky’s tunnel, where he grows strawberries in lots of hanging baskets, we decided to do the same but with used milk cartons. Make sure you punch some drainage holes in them, and keep them well watered, as they do dry out quickly, but its a quick and easy way to grow slug proof strawberries. Plus they hang down (as long as you put enough compost in the cartons), so they don’t rot.
