Yep, what I’ve read on strawberries says well-drained acidic soil. They don’t like wet feet. I just put pine straw around them....hopefully that’ll work but I’ve heard conflicting info on that.
I have a handful of strawberries turning red already. VERY excited about that! Glad I got some new varieties last year to extend my harvest season.
That explains why they love old coffee grounds so much. Not only does it keep the bugs away, it helps the soil for them.
