Winterizing strawberry plants

-A A +A
By Dennis Morgeson

One of the last garden chores of the season is tucking in the strawberry planting for winter. Strawberry plants have already set their buds for next spring’s flowers and the crop can be lost unless you protect them from harsh winter conditions. A fully-dormant strawberry plant’s flower buds can be damaged at temperatures below 15 degrees F.

In addition to flower bud damage, the alternate freezing and thawing of the soil that commonly occurs in winter and early spring can cause plant roots to break and the plants to be heaved right out of the ground.
