Q.winterizing potted patio strawberries

Anonymous added on December 11, 2014 | Answered

Once you bring your potted strawberries in the garage for winter, do they continue to need to be watered till spring? Or do you just leave them alone? I also have a strawberry bed outside that produced blooms for the last 4 years, but not one strawberry. I thought as long as they flowered, they would produce fruit. Is this not true? Thank you in advance for your help and expertise.

Yes, they should be watered about once a month during the winter season. Once spring and warm temps return, you can resume your regular watering regimen.

As for the non-fruiting issue, this article may help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/strawberry/strawberry-plants-no-fruit.htm

In addition to these possibilities, poor pollination could be to blame.
