Hello Margaret, I live in Portland too. Several people in Portland usually post on FB things for sale when they have divided their plants or have runners. Angela Cleary sells them at the Markets. Sometimes Gordon Page has excess. I think I will have spare too Margaret. I'll be sorting them out over the next few weeks so happy to help. cheers Karen

A good idea is to keep 4-6-8 plants to produce runners for the next year's planting. At the end of the strawberry season just give them a little fertiliser and water them regularly and they will produce several dozen new plants. At the local Men's Shed I had 28 plants grow through the summer and they produced hundreds of new plants (700-1000). I dug the majority of them in as they produced far more than I thought they would.
