I'm a new gardener and I started growing strawberries on vertical planters that take 6 plants per planter and stack up to make a strawberry tower.
I have two problems: 1. The strawberries were very small (smaller then a grape). 2. The runners are just hanging there because it's difficult for them to find a spot to attach to when you are growing vertically.
I recently added a high nitrogen fertilizer mixed with peat mos and top soil and don't know if that will help with the size. Any ideas?
Regarding the runners, can I cut them (before they have grown roots and attached to the ground) and plant them myself or are they not ready for cutting if they havn't grown roots and attached to the ground.
