Have spent last two years renovating our house - plan to spend 2019 in my garden. Hope to grow first ever vegetables and plant highly perfumed flowers

Fragaria x ananassa

#advice My first effort at growing a plant. I have a strawberry plant grown from seed - it’s now only just starting to flower and I have the beginnings of a strawberry. It’s kept in the house - what do I do with this plant now as I want it to grow next year? Let it grow fruit? Cut it back? Replant it outside? Help! I don’t want my first little plant to die off on me 🙏🏻😊

@linfoster - won’t that kill it? What with the colder weather coming in? Forgive me - I’m just learning 🤦‍♀️

They are hardy and conditioned for outside

Lin’s right. I’d also take the fruit off so it can put all of its energy into putting down roots and produce fruit for you next year 👍🍓 @linfoster
