Frost destroyed strawberries!! See photo attached.... should I cut off all the flowers that have dark brown frost damaged fruit inside? Will this help new fruits which haven't sprouted yet to develop? Never had this problem the past few years it seems the flowers came up earlier this year.... I came down the allotment to protect all my plants in the greenhouse when I heard frost was coming and didn't even think to put fleece over my strawberries!!




Yes, you should snip off those frost damaged blossoms so the plants don't waste anymore energy on them. Your plants look nice and healthy and will produce more blossoms as the season goes on. You won't even miss these.
