Q.

What to do if you forget to winterize strawberry patch?

Zone 7 | [email protected] added on March 15, 2015 | Answered

Last year I planted a strawberry patch but did nothing to winterize the plants. The plants still have some green leaves and some brown. Should I cut back the plants to give them a better survival rate or just let them be and let nature run its course?

I am absolutely notorious for not winterizing my strawberry patch too. It sounds like yours are recovering though. I would just carefully remove any dead leaves and other dead organic matter off the surface of the strawberry bed and let nature run its course.
