The potty gardener

I know this is probably a very basic question, but I have never tried growing strawberries before. The plants I put in have flowered nicely and I have baby strawberries growing well. There are also what I assume must be what are called runners sprouting. What is it best to do with the runners?

You can pin them down to the ground so that they root, when you can separate them from the parent plant - you then will have baby plants for next year.

However, if this is your strawberries' first year, many remove the runners so that the plant doesn't spend energy on them - it'll produce more next year.

thats helpful as I am growing them for the first time too.

Silly question..... but what is a runner? 


I made a video on this
