Pruning your Garden strawberry means higher fruit yields, and who doesn’t want that? You’ll need some gardening gloves and sharp scissors or garden shears for clean cuts.

You should check for any dead or old leaves and remove them as necessary throughout the spring and summer months. If you notice any disease or rot, remove the entire plant and soil to prevent the spread of infection.

When pinching back flowers, prune the stalks at the base where they join the rest of the plant. Only remove the smallest flowers at first as those will produce the smallest fruit. You can also use a pair of scissors if you have a lot of Garden strawberry, but you should look carefully before making your cut as you could accidentally cut off healthy flowers.

If you decide not to pinch back the flowers, you may need to remove unripe fruit if you notice the plant getting too crowded. Remove any damaged fruit along with fruit that are significantly smaller than the others and/or aren’t developing properly. You should use a pair of sharp scissors and cut.
