Thinning Out Strawberry Plants

Anonymous added on September 2, 2013 | Answered

I have a batch of berries that might be 20+ years old. How can I thin them out or whatever to get more than 15 little berries? Believe these are Everbearing and I know that there was about 15 this year that I managed to get before birds had the rest.

Cover then with a couple of inches of wood chips this year and the hardiest plants will grow back next year, thinning them naturally. If a larger crop is needed, remove all the blossoms on the plant this year, and you should have even larger fruit the next.
