Q.How To Care For Strawberry Plants In A Large Portable Container Over Winter?

Zone zone 6 | krystalmk added on December 11, 2020 | Answered

Hi, This past summer I tried growing several berry plants in a large container. Although the soil was good and they had sunshine all day, the berry crop was scarce. I’m hoping next year’s harvest will be much better. But my main question here is what to do for the plants over winter? I was able to roll the container into my garage on a small caddy. The container would surely crack if left out in the cold. The garage temps are between 40 and 50 degrees in winter. However the area doesn’t get a lot of sun, from only 2 big windows facing south. So what is best now for my plants? Should they be fertilized at this time or not? And how often should I water them, and how much? — Thank You
