Do strawberries symbolize love?
In Greek and Roman times, the strawberry was a wild plant. Legend has it that if you break a double strawberry in half and share it with a member of the opposite sex, you will fall in love with each other. The strawberry was a symbol for Venus, the Goddess of Love, because of its heart shapes and red color.
What does it mean if my strawberry plant is flowering?
Like most fruit, strawberries come from the delicate flowers that each strawberry plant produces. If the strawberry plants are well-tended, the strawberry flower buds should form, go dormant during the winter, and then burst forth again in the spring. And, the more flowers there are, the more fruit you can harvest!

Should I remove the flowers from my strawberry plants?
