Why are some of my strawberry plants not producing?


strawberry plantOne end of our strawberry bed is very unproductive. The plants form frail looking fruit trusses, and no fruit. I renovated the bed last summer, and the problem is still affecting the plants. Is it a disease?

Is this end of the strawberry patch wetter than the other end?
I suspect the smaller plants may have root rot. Could you dig up one of the plants and check to see what the roots look like and send a picture?
