My strawberry bed is sending out runners--out into the lawn. Dozens of them. They are very crowded and I'd like to start another bed.
I tried taking up the mother plant and all the runners and planting it into another prepared bed, but each time I do it, they die. About a week later the leaves are crisp, and the babies are hard and dead.
What am I doing wrong? Is it a bad time of year? What can I do to keep them alive?
