Growing Strawberries

Container grown strawberry plants: do the tops need pinching to make plants fuller?
Submitted by robinbergeron1



Thanks for writing. You don't need to pinch the tops of strawberry plants to make them fuller --- this can actually harm them. The plants will just need a little time to fill out, especially if this is their first year.
