I have planted strawberries in a terracotta strawberry planter (with all the planting holes). It started out great and is still growing. There were about 10 strawberries approaching ripeness when 2 puppies ate them off the plant! The plant is still thriving, but has stopped blooming! Is that the end for the season? Thank you.

My dog loves homegrown strawberries too. :) It depends on the variety of strawberry plant as to whether it will bloom again. There are ever bearing varieties than bloom more than once, but most plants bloom once a season. Sorry! (07/20/2010)
You may have June bearing strawberries that stop producing at the end of June or beginning of July. Your roots need room to travel. If you want to keep them in a pot you may need to transplant. Or put some holes in the soil and put new soil down in the holes for the roots to have room to travel and produce new growth.
Rabbit droppings mixed with water is what produces fruit. But if they're June bearing they usually start mid to the end of May and end in July. (02/01/2011)
