      Success With Strawberries

            I live near the ocean and the garden soil is always moist from the sea air. I was losing about half of my strawberries to mold. I tried straw but that just held the moisture and made the problem worse. I put the strawberry supports around all of my strawberries and what a difference it has made.

            My Second Order on the Way!

                  *Strawberries love growing within/on the platforms.I cannot believe the difference in production between the plants using the platforms and the very same variety of berry, grown traditionally on the ground.
                  *These were not meant to be weed free devices and I've found it quite easy to lift a leg or two and remove any weeds.
                  *The size of the rounds require some creative planning by gardener, in order to utilize many plants. It has been worth, because of results.
                  *Production and size of berries using the platforms outperform the traditional 'on ground' grown berries way beyond my expectations!
                  *PNW weather, also, couldn't hold the platform grown berries back. No mold or other problems.
                  *Neighbor interest in 'what's in those green things' has led to many friendly conversations. I used 4 rounds on each side of driveway, mixed with other plantings. The lime green w/ shiny red berries were an attention getter that really added to the landscape of that area.
                  *My additional order for next year, is on the way!!! Thanks for making this available to us!

                        • Sun Reaches Fruit Better

                        I ordered several sets of these supports after the plants were setting fruit, so installtion was a bit tricky, but they did the job of holding fruit off the ground. I was able to use half a set (semi-circles) on smaller plants with only a few berries. Also, easy to see where the plants were & whether berries were ripe. I just took them up yesterday & plan to store them, still assembled, so the 2 halves will be easier to work with next season.

                                  Six plants already sending out runners, so will have 12 next year. Surprised at how easily the supports went on existing, mature plants.

                                        Keeps berries off the ground as advertised, but often the pointy ends of berries will wind up in the holes, then as the berry grows, they get pinched and stuck in the hole. Perhaps I am unusual in that I can't check/pick every day. Also, I didn't anticipate that weeds would grow beneath this device,and grow up through the grid, making them difficult to remove. Next time I will lay down paper mulch beforehand to easily remedy this problem. Love that the berries are off the ground. Easy to assemble.

                                          They work, my strawberries look great. They could be a little bigger
                                          at the base of the plant as I'm having to use them without
                                          connecting them together due to my plants sizes. Does not matter
                                          they are working great.

                                              When I first ordered these, I thought "well, I'll give them a try - might just be overkill/a gimic." Wrong. These were my best new find of the gardening season. I'm back buying three more sets. They work perfectly in our square-foot garden (4x4)strawberry patch.
