Not really good practice to take too many runners from one plant and only root at the first joint, cutting the runner off beyond that. It is also best to cut off and remove any old leaves after fruiting, retaining the new leaves.
Now, I have just Googled this strawberry and the info says remove the flowers/fruit in the first year and that the plant is biennial. Does that mean it may not have runners, and you have to either grow it from seed or keep buying in new palnts?
