spots on strawberry leaves?

Posted by bambooberry 9b (My Page) on

Hello everyone! I'm new here and terribly inexperienced when it comes to gardening (especially edibles) but I thought I'd try my hand at growing strawberries. I've started them off in pots until I've fixed my backyard to transplant them in the ground and so far they've been growing great! But this morning as I was inspecting them I noticed that on my top leaves there were brown spots. Could anyone help me figure out what they are and how to get rid of them? (sorry my pictures aren't exactly the best quality) Any help is greatly appreciated :)

RE: spots on strawberry leaves?

The problem is that strawberry leaves get spots for a lot of reasons, and they're hard to distinguish at that stage.
It might be strawberry leaf spot, it might not. Time will make this more clear, and better clues can be found by looking at the underside of the leaf.

At any rate, I see that yours are flowering, so it's time to hit them with fungicide. Captan is a good all-purpose choice that will protect against gray mold and help control leaf spot, if it is.
