Strawberries not flowering

I bought some TIOGA strawberry plants from Bunnies early summer & they are producing lots of beautiful runners & healthy new plants without even one flower to date. Anyone know why & how to acquire some fruit before winter??

Are there any other day-length neutral strawb's around besides Alinta? (not that I don't like the Alinta)
Apparently these have a much longer cropping season...?

I have an original fruiting plant in the corner of the above GVP, but the fruit are often very slightly chewed at & I suspect slaters are the culprits. Anyone know of an organic control for them? The strawbs from this plant are fairly large, tasty & humbug shaped, but I cant find the label, any ideas?

Multiguard snail pellets do the trick sg. They are either iron or copper based - can't remember, but not poisonous anyway.

sg, I grow my strawbwerries in pots, up on old school desks. Our main problem here is Portugese millipedes - copper sulphate mixed with petroleum jelly around the rim of the pots keeps those away, as well as snails and slugs.

But this year they have been nibbled,and I finally found the culprits were small lizards. Don't have any ideas about dealing with those. Is it possible that you have them too?

Yes Julie, little skinks could be living down between the black plastic liner & the cor.iron sheets that form the sides. If that is the case I will share with them!
Waiting to see what happens under the orange skin that Brad suggested.
