Water strawberry plants frequently throughout the growing season and feed every two weeks.
From early summer, remove any runners that are produced as these will weaken the plants vigour. Cover the planter with a net to prevent the developing crop from being damaged by birds. The netting can be removed after cropping to allow better air flow around the crowns of the plants.
Although strawberry plants will continue to fruit in successive years, the crop will become considerably reduced and it is advisable to completely replace strawberry plants every 3 years.
