i planted earlys mids and late and perpetuating strawberries last year and pulled all the flowers off. This year i have plants 4x the size, they are full of strawberries. early this year when i tidied them up i cut off about 200 new plants fom the 36 i planted, now the neighbours all have strawberries too. I have laid down straw to keep the fruit off the ground and will apply nets as the fruit starts to advertise. looking forward to freshly picked ones.
