Since planting four wild strawberry plants back in August (see wild-strawberries-are-planted) it is time to see how they have been doing. I had huge problems with cats (mostly our cat!) digging in the new soil and through this we lost two of the four plants. I soon covered them with some wire mesh to stop the cat, and it worked.
The remaining two plants have multiplied and there are now two main plants and around four smaller plants coming off. So they seem to be spreading as advertised, which is great. They were planted in a space or pretty pour soil, very clay like, not very deeps, full of stones and weeds. I topped it all up with the results of the worm composter and have have been keeping an eye on the weeds.
