My strawberrie plant has developed two long shoots about 12inches long is that normal



Yes, they are runners, ie the plants that will produce Strawberries in future years. The original plant will only last 3-5 years in productive fruiting, so you need those runners to keep the plant growing. You normally only allow 6 runners to root to keep the plant from using all its energy up.
