Strawberry plants. I was gifted these and left them neglected in a corner of the garden but they seem to be doing fine, fruit ripening as we speak! I have no room for them in either my borders or pots. My question is can I leave them in these pots and with what can I feed them with? Thank you.




They look happy enough where they are..maybe you could move them up a pot size. When they produce runners you'll have to decide whether to grow them on or cut them off though.
But had you thought of using them as border edging plants?
With fresh compost I wouldn't bother feeding them but if you want to Miracle Grow as a general fertilizer and potash in early spring.

Ok. Thanks. Amazing what a bit of neglect can do! Lol ?

...and I bet those strawberries taste a lot better than the shop ones...

So true! The little things in life can make us so happy!

Just been amusing myself making a list - eg kittens, engagement rings, something flowering for the first time, and unexpected thank you....

Mmm... what would go on my list? Thoughtfulness towards others, kittens as well (as an avid cat lover), compliments, seeing wildlife in my garden - however small!

Agree with all those!
