I wish I could get my strawberry plants to thrive like that. I usually have not been able to get them stay alive after a week of planting. The last one of two seedlings I got stuck around for a few weeks and then it withered away. I really need to reap at least a fruit or 2 at some point in my life! 😢... I have felt like giving up a few times but I really don't want to....help!!! #strawberry #strawberryplant #strawberryplantproblems

@Keilak these haven’t been in very long so I’m hoping they do alright! They’re pretty needy plants. Aphids love them and almost killed a few of mine, but they came back okay. I’ve found that keeping the top layer of soil from dying out helps, mulch works a treat and water daily, I sometimes water twice a day when it gets really hot. I fertilise with Power Feed and Seasol every fortnight. #strawberry-advice I’m still learning a lot myself! Every withered plant is a lesson learnt 😂

Thanks @abbeyj...I wish you all the best with these, I sure they'll be ok this time around. You know I'm beginning to think that I have an pest problem as well. The edges of the leaves tend to get brown and then they wither away away one by one. During a period of rain they started to flourish, once the rain stopped and even while watering myself they died eventually...so I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong
