  • I’m doing a much better job than I did last year. First- I have thinned out the plants to leave only the largest mature plants with plenty of space in between. I water only in the morning so that the surface is dry by night time when slugs come. I have also laid bark mulch (straw would be good too I think) which helps with slugs. Then finally I got some cheap bird netting from Amazon. So far we have only seen two berries with slug bites. Last year at least half had damage. If you or anyone else knows much about this I am trying to find out something: I want to cultivate the runners which will grow after the berries. Next summer, can I harvest from those runners or do I need to remove the flowers and wait until two summers from now to harvest berries from those runners?
