june bearing strawberry runners-trim or not?
I'm new to gardening and have come across conflicting information on June bearing strawberries. I am going to be planting them in a raised bed (it's 5x10-too big for true SFG I realize now but I don't dare make my husband change it). The information I got from the extension office said that on June bearing strawberries I should leave all of the runners but now I'm reading in various posts here that I should trim all of the runners and keep individual plants-planted 4/square.
Also, any input on pinching the flowers off the first year? Some say it doesn't matter but the extension office stuff says I need to pinch them.
Any advice would be great!
