I have grown strawberries for the first time this year. My early strawbs are fruiting brilliantly but the later ones seem to have deformed berries. They have flowered as normal but instead of forming fruits in the middle of the flower they have grown a tightly packed bunch of mini leaves. Where the fruit should be forming appears to be just a bunch of leaves.
Is this a virus? Should I remove these plants or leave them in for next year?
i am a novice gardener and I cannot find this particular problem in any of my books.
Can someone enlighten me please?
