I have taken some new plants from runners. What do I need to do with the mother plant? Do I trim the leaves off? Thanks.

    if the mother plant is less than 3 years old , I'd give it a bit of a feed, If older, I'd ditch it.

    I do trim off all the tatty leaves, I don't feed until I repot in Spring and they show signs of new growth. I do grow mine inside only though, bringing them into the GH soon. Just keep damp, not much water.

    Dump the plant after its third year of producing.

  • Thank you.


  • Can I plant strawberries now or wait till the spring?
