The best thing to do is just cover it up and depending on where you are from (how cold it gets there) you should cover it more or less

Question by Adil: can my strawberry plant survive in winter?
can my strawbeery plant surive in winter if i keep it inside and i would also like information on its care
finally…. do strawberry plants dies after they give fruit

Best answer:

Answer by Lindsay
Mine are planted outside but I’m sure that it would still survive being kept inside. However it’s a plant that dies every year and comes back the following year, so it probably needs to die to produce the best fruit possible.

First of all, let the plants harden off, then after the first real hard freeze (ground frozen hard about 1/2 inch down), I usually wait until the 2nd or 3rd hard frost/freeze, otherwise the mulch could actually create a micro-climate effect, then place some twigs/sticks over the plants; apply a layer of mulch (4-6 inches), the sticks will help prevent the mulch from smothering the plants and make it easier to remove in the spring. Once you’ve covered the plants put a few more sticks on top to help prevent the covering from blowing off (esp with those high winds in your area). This helps to prevent heaving of the plants during winter especially if your soil doesn’t drain well. Mulch material can be most anything such as pine needles, straw (I prefer to use wheat straw) or even shredded newspaper (remember to remove the ad inserts as the color ink can contain heavy metals). Most avoid using actual pine bark mulch as it can mat down an be difficult to get up in the spring. Finally once you’ve put down the twigs-mulching material-twigs layers lightly hose it down with water. when next spring arrives remove from the plants but keep the mulch nearby just in case a frost occurs, you can put the layer back on to protect from a light frost. Hope this helps.

digging up strawberries over winter in WI?

Question by Shelley S: digging up strawberries over winter in WI?
I am moving house at the beginning of winter, and would like to take my strawberry plants with me- how can I store them over winter? – I’m assuming it’s best to replant them at my new property in spring

Best answer:

Answer by Ginny H
I don’t know how many plants you are talking about, but if I was you, I wouldn’t bother. Just order new ones from a place like www.jungseed.com and start over, you will probably come out the same as if you dug up your old ones(if they survive storage) and it will be much easier. However, if you REALLY want these plants for some reason, I guess I would try putting them in moist peat moss and store them somewhere where they will freeze but not too bad. An unheated garage might be a good choice. Put them in something that can breath(no plastic bags). I am just worried that digging up at this time of year and having them freeze might kill them. I guess it would be an interesting test! Try not to disturb the roots too much or remove too much roots. Good luck!

how to preserve strawberry plant in a hanging basket over winter period?

Question by VIC: how to preserve strawberry plant in a hanging basket over winter period?
we bought a strawberry plant in a hanging basket this summer and had many strawberries off now winter is upon us would like suggestions on how to preserve for this period thank you

Best answer:

Answer by Cat
A pot above ground during winter risks having the root ball freeze through – killing the plant.

you can sink the pot in the ground – the earth is naturally insulating. Or put it in the garage (but then you need to remember to water about once a month to make sure it doesn’t go bone dry), or in a cold basement (ditto on the water), or put it outside, against the house out of winter winds, and pile a couple feet of leaves over it all for insulation.

If your winters are mild (without sustained freezing temps for weeks), then it will need no special care. Just leave it out where it is.
