* fill a pot with compost. This pot can be buried in the ground, close to the plantlet. If the strawberries are grown under plastic, the pot will have to be kept above ground.
* peg the plantlet to the compost, but leave it attached to the mother plant.

In a few weeks, new plants will be big enough to be planted out as shown in the link.
