My spring planted strawberry plants are throwing out a lot of runners. I keep putting them back in the row so I don't mow them off.

Yeah i know - i really didn't think they would survive - was more of a curiosity thing. To see if they would bear good strawberries.

I will have to make sure next time i know which type.

I do know that there are June bearing, Everbearing and Day Neutral :h.

Mine are the free variety. My old neighbor just dropped off 8 single gallon pots of fruiting lovely strawberries. Not one of those berries will make it to ripe with my daughter around though :D
