How can you tell ...

... that it's not Fragaria vesca? (Leaves glabrous on upper side?)

Terminal tooth not longer and rounded leaf.

Leaf shape looks more rounded than F.vesca and has a terminal tooth but not longer than side teeth.

Not Barren Strawberry and not looking quite like F.vesca either, I think more like F.ananassa but happy to learn more and be corrected :)

Garden strawberry

I've just had a look at my garden strawberry plants, which are at least 10 years old and never fed. The difference seems to be mainly one of scale - the leaves are huge compared to F. vesca, as big as my hand across. It's difficult to judge the size from a photo.
