My Cousin has grown strawberries from seed, she is making a fun picnic basket display with the children at her school to fill with food plants to show at Tatton park flower show. Her plants have large leaves and a few flowers. If she took some of the leaves off would it encourage more fruit? She asked me because I grow Strawberries but mine are the same and I'm not sure.

Thank you



Removing leaves does not produce more fruit. It will help ripen existing fruit as the sun may get to it more.
