I set out everbearing strawberries last year. How many years can I hope to have berries before they need transplanting?

You are supose to remove the mother plant and let some of the babies take over about every three years. The mother plants will have bigger leaves, and show the runners that are comming from them. They will even continue to multiply if you choose to give them away when you pull them. Here is what happens.
The runners will get many babies. Strawberries are a ground cover. I give away strawberry plants every year becouse they just take over every thing.
The first few years they would not produce for me. So I did some research and found that rabbit droppings are the majic key to producing fruit. Stir them in water and just throw the muddy looking water on. Hourse manaure is a second choice. Good luck with your strawberries.
