Nice to meet you, Amy! [wayey]

Don't know much about strawberry plants...the only ones I have are wild strawberries at my farm.
Post that question in the "Fruits And Vegetable Gardening" forum below, and someone will probably see it and be able to help you out.

Welcome to the forum!

Hi Amy  - Welcome to the forum! Glad to have you with us [flower]

I had some strawberry plants this year, but I don't really know anything about them. We've got some gardeners that know ALOT about them and they should be along soon to help you.

See you on the forum!

Welcome to the forum. I too, had some questions about my strawberry plants this year. We just bought a new place this year and had to start from scratch with the landscaping. I bought some cheap strawberry plants from a local discount store. They had their little greenhouse set up out in their parking lot. I think I paid $.59 a plant and bought a dozen. To make a long story short, they totally flourished. I have harvested more strawberries this year than I ever dreamed I could. Some of the runners have even taken root. I probably have double the number of plants that I started with. Just this week end I picked a gallon jar full of berries, and we have even had a couple light frosts here in Montana. Since I was starting fresh with the garden I mixed some store bought top soil, peat moss, fertilizer, and top soil hauled in by the construction company. They are protected by the house, as they are planted on the south side. To get to my question, what can I do to help the plants winter, so they will come back next year? I realize they were just cheap plants, and I wouldn't be out much money, but I don't want to loose all the sweet berries that it spoiled me with this year. [flower] [flower]
