Success Overwintering Strawberry Towers

ali-bJune 26, 2013

I'm interested in making a strawberry tower probably with a cylinder of wire mesh. I'd probably make them at least 6" in diameter and 4' tall.

I've searched around quite a bit but was not able to find a success story for overwintering something like this. Has anyone had experience in keeping the strawberry towers alive over the winter and what was your winterizing technique? (bring in garage, cover with straw/burlap, etc.)
Thanks.
