Potatoes after strawberries?
i am cleaning out my strawberry patch as it is massively overcrowded, mostly dead, and seems to have plenty of resident pests that aren't helping my eventual yield, come harvest time. I am transplanting runners to a new patch, and will clear out all remaining dead/surplus foliage.
I am wondering what to grow in its place; it is a raised bed in a sunny position. I am thinking potatoes, but am concerned that perhaps the pests in the soil, namely slugs, snails and woodlice, would have a good old munch at them, underground? I do intend on using nemaslug this year, and what with the strawberries gone, hopefully less pests will congregate.
Any thoughts? Many thanks!
