We live in Hessle (East Riding) and grow a variety of fruit and vegetables in our 2/3 acre plot.
This year our strawberries are causing concern. Most are in a dedicated raised bed, with others in pots/planters around the garden . All appeared to be producing an excellent crop, but recently the plants in the raised bed (only these) are dropping their fruit, usually at the green/white stage.We would dearly like to know why this is happening and what we could do to salvage our crop.
Thank you.

Hi, in a raised bed they are probably suffering from lack of water. we haven't had much rain [I live near Beverley] and as the fruit is forming they are at their most vulnerable.

welcome to GoY too.
