|Your plants will produce new runners next spring so saving what you have may not be necessary or even practical. However, if you want each of the runners to produce new strawberry plants you only need to provide pots full of moist potting soil and set them beneath the runners so the runners can root in the potting soil. You may need to anchor the stems down to keep the runner making good contact with the soil. When they develop root systems you can cut the stems of the runners from the parent plant.
