…is so easy a caveman could do it.
Actually it usually just DOES itself. If left unattended, strawberry plants will send off runners which will root near the parent plant and become self sufficient, removable, separate strawberry plants.
However, we are planning on moving our strawberries this fall to a different place in the yard, so I’m going to try to keep things orderly in the strawberry bed until then.
I don’t see any reason to waste perfectly good potential plants, so instead of cutting off the runners, I’m rooting them in containers.
The sticks are just helping to hold the vine in place until the roots grow.
There is an excellent book that you can get from Amazon for (at the time of this writing) only $4.00.
