Good enough to eat
●● Propagating strawberries IF you want more strawberries for next season, check your existing plants, looking for the runners formed around them, which are potential new plants.
Remove any which look tired and unhealthy and leave enough for the number of extra plants you need.
To give the new plant its best chance, peg down the runner using a U-shaped piece of wire and improve the soil beneath the mini plant on the runner. The best way, although it is fiddly, is to peg the runner into a small pot of compost which you then put into the ground. It makes it easier to lift the plant later on.
Once the new plant has formed a good root system, cut it off from the parent plant and then plant it out.
You should soon have a bigger glut of strawberries in the new season.
