I am growing cranberries for the first time. The soil is heavy clay. I created a moist bed by mixing in 50% peat, which I water regularly. Thus it is a definitly 'damp'. Plus, it is in partial shade.
But I have read that commerically cranberries are grown in virtually water. Should I recreate the bed as a "swamp" by inserting a plastic layer under and around the bed to hold water? Thus it would be wet rather than damp?
Your thoughts would be much appreciated, as I can get little information elsewhere on cranberries.
