I have a mature bed of ever-bearing strawberries but last year my berries were very small. Does anyone know the cause and what I need to do to help them grow to a full size?

Thanks for any help you can give.

I would first take a look at how dense the bed is. Strawberries typically need to be thinned as the younger plants from runners will make the number of plants too dense. Also, there is some advantage to removing the older plants from time to time. Do you fertilize? How about a picture of your bed and the variety of strawberries?

It is often a water shortage...
