Question by Louisa L: Why are the leaves on my wild strawberry plant drooping and drying up?
I started my wild strawberry plant from seeds, which after many months, finally sprouted and since has been growing really quickly.

The leaves started out a lush green, but in the past week or so I’ve noticed that the leaves (especially the larger ones) are becoming increasingly droopy and are drying up. They tips feel “crunchy” to the touch, but I have regularly watered it. The soil is damp, though the pot has been placed indoors in full sunlight on a window sill. Is this the problem that it’s had too much sun, or is it something else?

For fear that it’s too much sun, I’ve now moved into into a shady spot and will hold off watering it (as overwatering can be bad I know).

Also, is there a difference between feed and fertiliser and is there one you can recommend for fruiting plants?

Thanks in advance!

Where can I get wild strawberry plants?

Question by rundown73: Where can I get wild strawberry plants?
I have a partial shade spot between my driveway and my neighbor’s house that could use a groundcover. I thought wild strawberries would be perfect (and delicious, too). But I can’t seem to find them anywhere. Does anybody know where I might be able to find some plants in Minnesota?
I’m talking about Fragaria Virginiana, the one that grows in the woods and has the most delicious concentrated little berries you’ve ever had. NOT fragaria chiloensis with the yucky white berries or any other weed.

I’ll let you do the research but google “Plantation, Florida strawberry’s”. You should find all the information you need there. It’s the strawberry capital of the world.

there’s 4 of them growing just outside my front door. They look similar to the pictures of wild strawberries I found on Google, but I would like to be sure so I can keep an eye on them and hopefully get to them before the wildlife does. :)

Planting strawberries: in rows or ‘wild’?

Question by Danielle B: Planting strawberries: in rows or ‘wild’?
I put down two neat rows of strawberry plants last Spring. This Spring they’ve all put out runners and started new plants, so I’ve probably got about twice as many plants, but it’s starting to get a bit messy. Now the messiness is itself not a problem, practically speaking – it’s a pretty small patch and I can still reach all of them. But I wonder if it is best for them to have space? Should I keep plucking up the offspring, so as to keep maximum root space for the more mature ones, or just ‘let a thousand flowers bloom’, let evolution have its way, and hope for more berries in the end?

Best answer:

Answer by Jerry
Sounds like you’re fine for year 2. I’d just let the plants reproduce for now. For future years, keep some of the younger plants and cull some older ones. In my experience, production drops off after a couple of years.
