Some of my Elsanta June bearing strawberries are very crowded in their planter. This is my fault. I repotted a smaller and crowded tub on top of the planter without breaking it, so to not disturb existing roots, but perhaps I should have tried and separate the plants first, so to space them more. The soil of the planter is covered in agricultural membrane to protect the fruits from rot. Now they are growing very leggy, I guess because the leaves touch each other. That also happened to some extent with the plants on the sides, perhaps because the leaves are touching the planter itself. That is lots of foliage and energy directed to make it, plus it cuts sunlight and reduces air circulation, I think. Would it be a good idea to remove some of the foliage to let more light in? Thanks for any advice!
