Overwintering Strawberry Plants

mlipps | Aug 10, 2010 08:18 PM

I planted my mom & dad a little container garden in Rubbermaid totes this spring, including a strawberry plant that is very healthy (Hurray!) We're hoping to help it survive the winter. I live in zone 6a. My thought was to dig a hole and stick the whole thing it so as to pretend it's buried but not disturb the roots, mom and dad think that's a little nuts. Any opinions? We could bring it in too if you all think that'd be best, or put it in our garage, although it may get confused there as my dad does occasionally build a nice fire and heat that room up.
