First get some fertilizer, or for us, leaf mulch + kitchen peelings composted. Doesn’t look pretty, but very high in organic material and water retention capacity, from the ‘heap’ out back.
Target area, which had been a pile of composting leaves, weighed down with cardboard to stop it blowing away over the winter.
Next add leaf mulch / compost + top soil!
Opps, forgot to put frame in for the peas, yes it would have been smarter to put it in first and bury it as you go.I was tempted to switch the sequence of the photos and pretend that’s what I actually did!
Peas planted, very delicate too, snapped a couple trying to weave them into the wire frame.
In with the strawberries, they like to throw off runners and create new mini plants, so are fairly easy to transplant off another ‘mother’ plant that has generated new plants.
Done, and the next container too, peas & strawberries as well. Fingers crossed they settle and produce fruit this year, if not, should be good for next otherwise.
