Q.winterizing strawberry plants

Zone Northern Ct. | racheld added on November 5, 2015 | Answered

I planted strawberries in 3 milk crates, the plastic kind about 16″ x 16″ x 16.” The plants are coming through the sides and top. How would I winterize these containers and how much of the plants should I cut back?

If they are in danger of freezing be sure to mulch them heavily.

I have my strawberries in a small border, about 12 plants in all. They seem to survive in the winter - have them 3 years. I live in Northern Ireland. I just cut off any old yellow leaves. This year I planted the runners to make new plants as they only do about 3 years. Hope this helps.
