Answer: Once the winter is finished in your area, remove any mulch from the strawberries, clean out any dead leaves lying around and fertilize the berries with some compost. As long as the plants are healthy, they shouldn't have a severe problem with leaf spot. A few spots are oaky, but if leaves are dying, then you need to spray fungicides to control it. Also, the weather influences the amount of infection. Cloudy, wet, cool weather encourages the leaf spots.
