Are these just the oldest leaves?

Is it also putting out fresh new growth?
If so, get a pair of scissors and snip off the old brown leaves near the base - it is quite normal for strawberry leaves to do this.
If it is not putting out new growth then I'm afraid I don't know the answer, but a photo may help others to work it out.
