We just moved into a house with a long everbearing strawberry patch planted on a slope. The berries were perfect for picking just a couple days before we moved in. Needless to say, after spending a few days getting moved in, the berries are pretty bad. I know nothing about how to take care of strawberry plants.
Do I need to go pick the rotten berries and clean out the bed / take out the really old (unrecognizable in many cases)?
Do I need to spray the for bugs and if so what do I use and how often?
We've had a ton of rain in the week that I've been here so I haven't worried about watering... but do they need watered regularly?
I've read that strawberry plants need to be replanted every 3 years. The house was built 5 years ago but I have no idea how long these plants have been here. I'm not sure if this is true for everbearing, but if so... how do I know when it's time to dig up the plants?
Anything else I need to know?
