Answer: There are different views on how to treat your strawberry plants for best yields. I have had good luck leaving "mother" plants to produce for 3 and 4 years, all the while increasing the bed with the "daughter" plants. Much depends on the conditions, too -- diseases and reduced soil fertility can take their toll on older plants and result in lower yields. The runners you set this spring and summer should produce a crop next spring. Enjoy!
