Hi all, I am in need of some assistance please. I have been growing a strawberry patch for over a year now and the entire bed is full of plants, 100's in fact, but I have not had 1 flower or straberry, even from the original plats that i planted and have spread. What is wrong, or what do I need to do to get strawberries. Fertiliser or do I have the wrong strawberries
The main reason any plant grows Jetboy is to produce progeny.
Strawberries have two ways of doing this.
By seed....which in the case of strawberries is not a particularly productive way...or by runners.
I suspect that your plants have found that they have been allowed to produce runners with no control at all.
As a result you have hundreds of little plants each producing yet more runners and so on.
They have no need to produce flower and fruit...the young plant production line is going far too well and the density of the plants will inhibit flower production anyway.
Get in there and thin the whole block out. Remove all the runners and leave strong healthy plants at around 6 inch spacings.
You should then find they will start flower production again.
