Hi I grew some strawberries in styrofoam boxes late year. Can't remember the name but they were small and delicious. Unfortunately, they did not send out runners and eventually died off. Do some do this or have I done something wrong. I have just bought a couple of punnets from Bunnings and they already have runners. How do I propegate if no runners set? Thanks Di

Hi Di, I think the Strawberries you had are called Alpine Strawberries they do not have runners and are very sweet. I have just sown some seeds (Yates) which I bought on the internet but pretty sure Bunnings have them. I just have to hope they will germinate.

The Diggers Club on the Mornington Peninsula near Melbourne list a non-running variety called 'Temptation'. This may be the one you are looking for.
