Alabama jumpers for strawberrys in new raised bed

Larry Welch

I use ground wood (aka woodchips) mulch for all my garden veggies with very good results. Not unlike in the Back To Eden approach. But I have never tried to grow strawberries and am wondering if anyone here has tried woodchip mulch for them. I cant see why woodchips wouldnt work fine for strawberries since I understand they do very well under wheat straw.

I find that woodchips are a magnet for Alabama Jumper worms in my GA red clay and have grown fond of these amazing worms. I have collected a large number of AJs from around my composting site over the last couple of years and plan to jump start the new bed by adding a few hundred of them before planting. The new bed will be aprox 4X18'.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
