Strawberry question

PatrickWJuly 18, 2012

Hi, I'm new here and new to gardening. My wife and I have set aside a small plot and this is our second year of putting in a garden. We planted about 100 mail order strawberry plants a couple months ago and for the most part they have seemed to come up fine and are putting out runners. Now we have noticed that the leaves are getting brown spots on some of the plants. On most of the plants the leaves have a slight curl as well. Does someone have an idea as to what's going on? We are also having some issues with our raspberries and apple trees as well which I hope to get to later. Thanks!

In my minimal experience, all kinds of stuff happens to strawberry leaves. I consider those normal, and the new growth looks good. Ground looks a little dry though. New plantings should be kept watered. You should see my strawberry leaves! I'd just leave those alone or you can remove them if it bothers you. Maybe spray with a fungicide. I've never sprayed my small 3 year old patch. I just went through mine and removed the old foliage.
