I have my strawberry plants set out in a raised bed, for the Winter should i pot up plants and keep them in tunnel till spring time setting them in another raised bed?
We had some strawberry plants out this year but none of the fruit developed. Is it possible to store them over the winter and re use them next year or would you recommend we buy new plants? We were very disappointed as there were some fruits but they neither ripened nor developed.
Last year I set a new crop (my first year) of strawberries and the crop was good. However this year crop is poor, some of the berries are getting rotten before ripening and the fruit is small. I left the plants in the bed over the winter and this year I did not lift them from that bed. Also some of the plants did not thrive at all.
got strawberry plants in april in our local garden center we have very small garden so we just put them in bigger pots we had them in a mini green house until 3 weeks ago when we took them out of it we are feeding them as well as watering them but while they are producing lots of new leaves they are not producing any flowers any one i know with strawberry plants are already seeing fruit. what can we do?
We've never grown strawberries before and are thinking of getting the elsanta variety. I'm wondering if they could be grown with success in containers or grow bags or would they be better off in the ground.
Would you know where I might be able to buy Sovereign strawberry plants? We had them when I was a child and they tasted much sweeter than any around now.
I recently purchased some strawberries and have since repotted them in to soil which has some fertiliser and worm castings to it. Should I1. Feed them before they start to flower in the summer or will they be ok without any feeding2. If they do need to be fed, how often should i feed them3. Should i use dry fertilizer or liquid Fertiliser. I recently aquired some liquid bat guano and was wondering if this would be suitable for strawberries.

How do I maintain my strawberry patch which I have in a polytunnel - the plants are in a mess - lots of dead leaves - do I discard the original plants and replant the runners?
Q1: i have cut back and dug up as much of the bramble roots as i can in new fruit patch. If i spray roots with Round up now how soon can I plant raspberry canes? or is it better to snip off as much root as possible?Q2: how do you get new strawberry plants from runners?Q3: luckily have found new space for orchard. Hoping to plant a mixture of apples(6), plums(2), pear(2) and cherry(2)? how much space should there be between each tree? and should all apples , pears etc be planted close or can they be mixed through?
Our garden is recently becoming infested with clusters of tiny, slim black worms (12mm max) feeding on tunnel strawberries, fallen apples, tunnel and outside lettuces - any soft fruit/vegetable in contact with ground. Are these a kind of eelworm and how can they be controlled.
