This is the first year I planted strawberries and I notice that as soon as the white flower drops the little green strawberry turns brown and fall off. I have them in two large pots and they get plenty of sun and water. Otherwise the plants look healthy. I did notice that once in a while a leave turns brown around the edges but I pinched them off and the rest of the plant looks good. What do I need to do? Thanks

It sounds to me like the flower isn't being pollinated. Have you seen bees hanging around the flowers?
