you get one crop per year spread over a period of three to four weeks. The plants last several years. The first years crop is a small number of large berries, the second year a large crop of large berries and the third year a large crop of small berries. You should have one third one year old, one third two year old and one third three year olds. Strawberries can be transplanted between late September and March.

strawberry plants are generally not split or divided up and it is always better to use a younger plant already provided by the runner.

I watched a video of pat clarke's strawberry growing in meath. He uses Elsanta variety and he states in the video he gets two crops from them. Is this possible??
