Hi,

I have planted strawberry plants on large pots and they are quite productive. I am not entirely sure what variety they are.

I ordered them online from Bakker and they came as little brown withered looking things! But they soon perked up once planted.

I am just wondering if they will come back next year or are they only good for one season and have to be dumped?

i presume that you have one of the ordinary summer fruiting types, so after fruiting the plants produce long runners (several) and at the end of each runner is a small strawberry plant which when rooted will produce a plant that will crop next summer as well as the parent plant

Hi Colin

The plants are usually productive for 2 years. As Michael says though, they throw out fresh plants on runners so you will always have fresh supplies...
Cheers
