Strawberries in SWC's+Overwintering

donna_h(Zone 4-b)February 16, 2009

Hello everyone...new member here with a question.

Does anyone have a tried and true procedure for overwintering strawberries that have been grown in an Earthtainer located in my zone-4b? It gets quite cold here and we have LOTS of snow every winter.

I would like to grow strawberries in a SWC, but would hate to lose 25 plants because I didn't have the correct information on how to overwinter. I have found lots of confusing information on this subject and would like to hear suggestions from anyone that has done it successfully from year to year.

Thanks in advance for any help with this.
