Strawberry plants. Was left a tray of sad looking strawberry plants which I have potted up. Can I keep them outside all winter or will they need frost protection? I Could put some fleece over them I suppose?




Hi, all species of Fragaria are fully hardy, native to temperate regions of the northern hemisphere, but as we've already had a frost, I would just leave them in a sheltered spot outside, try to prevent the pots from freezing, I would bury them up to the rim of the pot in bark chippings or similar, then plant them out next spring, Derek.

Thanks Derek.

Also you could trim off a lot of the larger leaves and just leave the smaller ones on ...
