Overcrowded alpine strawberries.






Each plant has formed four or five clumps.






The plants get bunged in a washing up bowl.






And are then divided. Many are replanted in pots.






And ruthlessly pruned to encourage root formation.






The bed gets weeded, lightly manured and levelled.









Replanted alpines look scrawny but will fill the bed in a year!
