First year strawberry patch
Hi. I wanted to get a little more advice than what I got from Nourse. I planted 25 Jewel (June-bearing) and 25 Mara Des Bois (ever-bearing). I'd appreciate any advice on how to start a successful berry patch.
For the Jewel, the directions say to allow 2-3 daughter plants to root on each side of the plant and to remove any additional runners. Do you trim the runners that form past the daughter plant also?
For the ever-bearing, the directions don't really say whether you should trim any of the runners. So do you let them all stay wherever they go, move them and let them root, or trim some?
