Ive inherited lots of strawberry plants in my new alotment. Im not sure how long these plants have been there for. Ive recently dug them all out and put them in a new raised bed full of good soil and I'm planning to water with tomato food etc. Ive heard that strawberry plants should be thrown away after three years? Is this true? As I said I don't know how long these plants have been on the go and I dont want to be wasting time looking after them if they will produce nothing, Replanting all 80 of them took a long time!! Does anyone have any experience of old plants being great producers? Plus has anyone left their plants in situ for years without any bother? They look great in their new raised bed and I don't fancy having to do the same again next year! You can tell Im so new at this ay?
