[NAFEX] Strawberry runners

My "old leaves" are still perfectly green and healthy-looking. I'm growing everbearers that are sill pumping out flowers and fruit in addition to all these runners, but when I grew junebearers before, I recall that the leaves stayed healthy without me doing anything besides weeding.

Melissa, 

   

Rivka beat me to the point… if you
google “renovating strawberries” many of the web sites mention this
process.   

   

Rivka, I did mow fairly soon after harvest
was done.  I was also careful about how close to the crown I mowed.  When
done, I spread 10-10-10 over the rows and generously watered it in.
