I have about 24 half barrels that I am growing strawberries in. I planted them earlier this year, and they were quite prolific -- producing alot more fruit than I ever thought first year transplants could. 'Course that rich soil they were planted in, plus all the composted horse manure I heaped into the containers prolly helped in that regard. These plants are now producing runners - lots and lots of them - and the runners are spilling out of the containers. The containers are three to three and a half feet off the ground, so I'm not sure if they can reach the ground to take root or not. But at any rate, I have not enriched the soil below the containers -- it's just heavy clay soil with grass groing on it. But here's my question: I'm wondering if I could clip those runners and plant them in a raised bed I have just built in another part of my garden. There they would have rich soil to grow in. If the runners can be clipped and replanted, how would I go about doing that? Thanks for your advice.
