Is this normal or sign of something else. 
The new leaves seems to be showing signs of this 

It's been in the ground for nearly a year. Been watering it every other day. The soil improver was added today to help reduce soil compaction.

    You may be being too kind, too much watering will wash nutrients away from the roots.
    Looks a bit like magnesium or possibly nitrogen deficieny but could also be slightly too high ph if you have been using hard water from the tap

    Yellowing on a healthy plant is usually over watering.
    Strawberries are tough old souls once they are growing their roots. I'd leave the watering and only do it if the ground is rock hard for some time during fruiting. That's really the only time they need to have some water - not a lot.
    It's doing well. Don't panic :)

    Just thought. Strawberry leaves do go yellow then crispy brown from time to time. From the basse like this
    It's normal and 'clean' them off spring and autumn. 
    They can, not always, keep damp around the plant and create mould.
