Strawberries as tasty ground cover

I grow strawberry plants under and around my soft fruit bushes to suppress weeds. The shallow-rooted strawberry plants don’t affect the bushes, have plenty of fruit themselves, and look pretty when they are in flower. This sort of idea is quite permacultural – add a tree layer of dwarf apples and you’ve got a mini ‘forest garden’.
