This is short and simple, but so important. If you want your strawberry plants to produce more strawberries you have to pinch off the runners. The runners are those long tubes with a small little plant that grow off the main strawberry plant and often seem to appear overnight. That means following the runner to the base of the plant and cutting it off about an inch from the base. Doing this will allow the plant to put its energy and growth into berries rather than its runners. You will be amazed how this one little trick will drastically increase your yield. Thanks for reading and happy gardening. I am off to check my strawberry plants for runners that need to be removed :).
