Bed from under wild strawberry to dig over and leave to have a rest. At the end of September beginning of October on this bed to plant garlic. In two years other gryadochka to trade places with garlic. There is such circulation! Of course, in the first year on this bed of berries it is not enough, but present with harvest three others.
