winterizing potted patio strawberries
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.

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