strawberry growing techniques

Hi all,

I bought some strawberry plants two years ago. First year planted them in a hanging basket and nothing happened, crop wise.
Last year, divided what was left from the previous year and put them in the ground and raised beds. Produced 4-5 strawberries.

So this year what can I do, to get a good crop?

    Hi @Juniper4

    Do you feed them enough?
    To get the best out of strawberries, you ideally have to feed them every fortnightly with a high-potash feed (liquid tomato feed is ideal).

    Poor pollination may also be a problem - you can try pollinating by hand to raise your yields.
    Better still, plant lots of pollinator-friendly plants near to your strawberries.
