Q.Overwintering strawberry plants in containers

Zone 17111 | Steve Wetzel added on June 30, 2017 | Answered

I am planning on keeping my potted strawberry plants in an unheated section of my basement where the absolute coldest temps of the winter might go down to 45 degrees in the most extreme conditions. My question refers to the need to water the plants during these winter months. Is it necessary to water the plants at all over the winter….if so….how much and how often?

Just make sure the soil doesn't dry completely out. A small amount of water can be added to the soil to just keep it from cracking. Too much moisture cold rot the roots.
