I have lots of Quinault strawberries growing in my garden. In doing research, this variety is not supposed to put out a lot of runners but no one told my strawberries the news. I have over 75 plants now and gave away almost 30 last October.
I will however, be picking the runners off these in the future so that the plants will put all their energy into producing strawberries. This will be hard for me! I HATE throwing away future plants but I have 5 plots with strawberries now and I have no intention of starting a strawberry farm. Well I might plant a few runners in pots, OH PLEASE HELP ME………
I usually get 2 crops out of these strawberries so I can’t wait until the fall crop. I transplanted the babies way to late in the season but even these seem to be producing berries like crazy. I have mulched these recently and do feed them coffee water and compost. I also make sure they get watered daily.
