Propagating Strawberries for fall
It is almost impossible to transplant newly set runners during late summer or fall and have them survive. It can be done but it is a lot of work. So this year when needing a new bed, I have tried something new. As the old plants have sent out new runners I have picked the best looking and "planted" them in peat pots adjoining the old plants. When they have grown well, I will cut the new plants off the old ones and put the peat pots in the new bed. Hopefully they plants will feel less disturbed and thrive.
