Creative System For Growing And Protecting Strawberries


Take a look at this creative system for growing and protecting strawberries. It has four hinged lids with hooks and handles, and it measures 12 feet by 3.25 feet. In order to keep animals out and let pollinators in, the lids even have a hardware cloth attached. Check out the pictures bellow for more details.

    What do you protect your strawberries from with this system? It looks interesting. Do strawberries always fruit over the protective fence?

      Protects from birds eating the fruit, mostly, also rabbits, gophers, etc. I tuck my runners back in to keep them from growing fruit outside of my netting.

      Deer LOVE to eat the leaves and berries. They will destroy a patch. The strawberries could easily form above the mesh but I would think you would want them to stay contained beneath it. You would have to push them back.

    Will wire on the bottom keep moles out?

    But does it protect from SLUGS from underneath?
