Slugs Love Strawberries

 

 

Dampness and slugs are the worst enemies of strawberries.

Strawberries are easy to grow.

Root rot, fruit rot, and fungus are the most serious problems with strawberries. Keep them dry with good air circulation.

Mulch between plants to keep the soil cool and moist. But do not keep the leaves wet. Straw is a perfect mulch for strawberries.

Here are some tips on keeping slugs away from strawberries and other plants.
