It’s that time of year when the strawberry plants start shooting out their runners. The plants I have are not just good fruit producers but they are experts at reproduction.
Unfortunately, I doubt a strawberry plant, no matter how robust, would survive the pond, so the runner has been rehoused in a pot from which nothing germinated. Hopefully, the seed within won’t now decide to compete with its neighbour.
On a completely different note, I’m so pleased to see the echinacea flowering. I hope this too will be a strong reproducer, so that in the future I will have more than just the two flowers.
