I have been unsuccessful with strawberry plants in the past (pot grown ones both in greenhouse and in pts on deck).
When clearing out an old flowerbaed last weekens I can across a few (very healthy looking) strawberry plants. I intend to totally clear that flowerbed as I am going to pebble it, so has anyone any advice on whether it's ok to pot these up and keep in greenhouse over winter? It is not a heated greenhouse. Should I water over winter? howe often? Any tips greatly appreciated.
No reason why you shouldn't pot them up. Remove tatty or damaged foliage, leaving the crown. Keep lightly watered over winter - damp rather than wet - and watch out for insects.
