I bought a strawberry plant in a basket last September. It did not produce any strawberries. In November there was a full basket of new green shoots. I put the basket away from frost till this spring but there are no new shoots at all. Is this plant dead?
This article will help determine if the plant is still alive or not: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm
What to do with strawberry plants once leaves have died off. Plants are in a pot.
You can prune the plants back in fall. This article will help to get the plants ready for winter: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/strawberry/winterizing-potted-strawberries.htm
I have them in separate pots, still attached to the moms, but when I cut them away, do I keep them growing over the winter in a sunny cool place or let them go dormant? I have no place that is warm when it freezes out, which is rare.

If I place potted plants in an area that won't freeze, do they need to be watered throughout the winter?

I recently bought some strawberry roots and planted them in bio-degradable pots. I have been giving them plenty of sun and water (not too much water). They are pretty small pots. I am wondering why the leaves are drooping and some of the plants are falling over. I am thinking it could be because I need bigger pots or to plant them in the ground since they are bio-degradable pots. I have never tried strawberries before this year. So, hopefully someone can answer this for me! Thanks

I am searching for directions to build growing containers for my strawberries plants in my garden, which is limited in space (wood frame-stackable). Can you help me find this info?
How much space can you give the strawberry bed? (square feet) I would caution against using salt treated lumber unless lining with plastic before adding the soil. You could make any shape and then continue building in smaller diameter layers, 4-8''deep. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/strawberry/growing-strawberry-plants.htm
I have many strawberry plants in plastic pots or window boxes. I wintered them in my unheated garage, but I was wondering when I should move them back outside. I live in northern NY (zone 4 or 5). We have been getting 50 and 60 degree days so I thought about putting them outside, but I wasn't sure if the nightly frost wold hurt them, or if they are hardy enough for that.
Yes, you can put them outdoors. If you are concerned about frost, you can cover the plants with straw mulch for added protection.
