Are we allowed to bring out plants with soil in a pot?

Nope. You'll have to remove the soil :)/>

I wanted to buy the strawberry plants from WF, but decided against it. The lady there (owner?) informed me that once the present batches of strawberries ripen and are ready for plucking, that plant might only fruit once more, and it won't fruit again.

I'm not sure how true that is. But I know I didn't buy because of that...

I've plonked seeds I picked off a strawberry onto the soil but none germinated. Thinking of cheating and getting a pot at Kovan.

How long do they take to germinate on average ?
it's nice as a plant hanging in a pot in the kitchen...

You can pin the runner down to get them to root and you will have many plants soon. Do update on your their growth.

Umm, anyone's strawberry plants still going strong ? I've bought one recently and it turns out that I've just bought the mother cow ._. she's thoroughly exhausted after having put out many runners and fruits (evidence in the numerous dried, cut-off stems...silly me didn't take much notice). I'll just take care of her till she goes then, before I get me another strawberry plant.

I'd like to know how others' plants are going...

in cameron highlands..
the strawberry farm will from time to time uproot the plants.. cut off the bottom of the plants (roots and part of the stems), leaves, and flowers and make them look like stubs, akin to when u have chopped off the leaves from the coriander plant that u buy from the market... Then, they plant that back in the soil.. since the plants can grow from runners (or stolons), it is belived that the tops can be rooted easily too.. and the plants wont the that exhaustive.. so can fruit better..

Really ? my plant has pushed out a few new leaves. Are you saying that I can pick off a stem and try to get that to root ?
