Q.Getting Rid Of Wild Strawberries

Zone Charlottesville, VA 22901 | dwparlette added on February 5, 2020 | Answered

I have a lot of wild strawberries growing along the house, in a large bed of vinca minor. How can I get rid of the wild strawberries without killing the vinca minor? It is a large area and it would be very difficult to pull out all of the wild strawberries.

Wild strawberry, whether Fragaria species or Duchesnea species, will be very difficult to control without killing your Vinca as well.

Starting over fresh, or killing everything will be the quickest method, though pulling by hand will be the only way to save your Vinca.
