Yes, it is designed to resist even the strongest of winds.
Must there be soil in the whole bed?

Can strawberries be grown in the raised bed
Yes, and it is a very good way of doing so. One gets strawberries at least a couple of weeks earlier if the bed is covered in plastic. But remember! When strawberries flower, both the plastic and the netting should be opened a little to let the bees in to pollinate, or you won't have any strawberries.
What is the best time of the year to set up the
It can be set up at any time. It can be a really good idea to set it up in the autumn while the weather is still settled, and then you are ready in February when it is often a good time to plant pre-sprouted potatoes despite the risk of night frosts. If the raised bed garden is set up at the beginning of August, one still has time to harvest lettuce and many other delicious vegetables.
