Container Strawberry Plants
Q.

Strawberries

Zone St Clair Shores, MI 4808a | taxewald added on May 10, 2018 | Answered

I just planted some container strawberries and they should be in night time temperatures of at least 50 degrees. Here in Michigan I know I will have some nights in the 40\'s since we are having such a cold spring. So how do I protect them. I am a NOT a gardener and this is my first attempt to grow anything. Help!!!

You can cover strawberries when it's cold with plant covers or even light sheets.
You need to uncover them as soon as the cold threat is over.
