Immediately summer strawberries have finished cropping, the old tops are removed. This involves cutting off all the leaves, new and old, and
removing all plant debris. Care must be taken not to injure the crowns
(the central growing point, just above soil level).
This process of removing the leaves prevents the overwintering of botrytis & other pests and diseases.
The photo below shows the row of Honeoye strawberries. They have
stopped producing fruit, so all the tops have been removed.
