The strawberry vines are taking over!

Susan asks:


There was a couple of strawberry plants in our garden last year- now they are everywhere - any suggestions on controlling them or getting rid of them?


Due to the type of plant strawberries are they can be hard to control, in order to spread strawberry plants send out runners which may becoming invasive. There are a number of things that can be done to control spreading plants like this to rid the entire garden of the plant a broad spectrum herbicide would do the trick. If you wish to remove the plant from lawn areas use a herbicide specific to broad leaf weeds. Hand pulling may also be needed however the runners may make it hard to remove the entire plant. In future planting spreading plants like these are best suited for pots and areas that you would like to be taken over. There are also verities of strawberry plants that are less likely to spread.
