strawberries

queensinfoApril 17, 2012

I planted 25 bareroot seascape strawberries in window boxes 3-4 weeks ago. The plants all have 3-5 large leaves and have been putting out some flowers. I know that I am supposed to pinch them off in the beginning (and runners too, although i havent seen any of those yet). How long should i keep pinching off flowers? end of april? mid may?

Also, when pinching off flowers do i pinch off each individual flower head or the whole stem (which looks like it has 4-7 other little flowers in various stages of development).

Thanks

I also planted strawberries about 6 weeks ago here in SW MO. 100 Junebearing and 200 Everbearing. It's hard for me to believe how fast these things grow, I already have several hundred white blooms and dozens of nickel sized green strawberries on my plants. I know everyone advises to remove blooms on young plants but I'm not pinching or pulling anything unless it's a red strawberry. Good Luck.
