i have quite afew trailing strawberry plants what do i do with all the trailing bits

On plant trailing bits



Either cut them off, or let them root. If you let them root, then you will have new plants next year. Strawberry plants have a productive life of about 3 years, so it pays to let the runners root.

I'd cut off some of the runners, as they may produce far more that you want. Pot up a few to grow on and cut off the rest.
