Late with everything this year, so bought some strawberry plants.
2 Sequoia ever-bearing (I think) - standard here in So. Calif.
2 .June bearing. Nursery guy said not limited to June in this climate.
The Junies have runners galore. I was taught that one should cut off the r
unners for plant to retain "strength", and that runners could be planted to
get new plant.Or should I plant them far apart so runners can root themsel
Nursery guy thought don't cut off runners. Does he know what he's talking
Been a few years since I grew strawberries. Rusty as to best practices.
EHow says: Strawberry growers often plant June-bearing strawberries in a m
atted row system with about 4 feet of space between each row to allow runne
rs to develop. Everbearing strawberries can grow effectively in a hill syst
em with plants growing closer together with runners removed as they appear.
Whathethell is a "matted row system"??
TIA for any info.
