Image of Strawberry

Another garden delight, especially for children. This one repays daily checking and fruit can be eaten straight off the plant. In temperate zones plant runners in autumn and spring, mulch generously with straw and harvest from summer into late autumn. Fortunately runners will bear fruit for two years before needing to be replaced.
