Hundreds of strawberry plants-what do i do with them


I'm disabled and last year I bought some trailing strawberries "Red Cascade", because I couldn't plant them, I asked my husband to just put them in the raised bed. Ive just seen them! I've got hundreds of them, because they were free to trail all over the bed.

There's literally hundreds of them all with very small fruit (like native plant). Just what can I do with them, as it is my garden is bursting!


Any ideas guys?

    It's a problem I wouldn't mind having Polly! Could you give some of them away to neighbours/friends/relatives or even a local school to give to the children? Are you wanting to get rid of the plants themselves or just the fruits this year? You could make some jam if you just want to use up the fruit.

    Would it take forever to collect them for jam then!
