Q: Fall Runners, Spring Strawberries?
On October 9, 2010, Rena asked:
Could you please tell me, if I plant a runner in the fall, will it produce berries the following spring?
Answer to: Fall Runners, Spring Strawberries?
Yes, most runner plants that are planted in the fall (if overwintered properly), will produce a healthy harvest of strawberries the following spring. Planting your strawberry plants in the fall is generally the best approach for a first-time planting as well. If you already have established strawberry plants and just want to move the daughter plants, see the Transplanting Strawberries page for some tips. If you are planning a first-time fall planting, you can order plants from these suppliers of Fall Strawberry Plants. Hope that helps!
