strawberry plants

Hereford, United Kingdom Gb

Hi again everyone, now that frost as come/coming i was wondering what im supposed to do with my strawberry plants, do i dig them up and pot them in greenhouse for over winter or is there something else i should be doing with them, thanks all



Just leave them alone, they die back and then grow again in spring.

Thats what I will be doing but other people have told me to cut them back to the crown?

You are welcome... To be honest I think raspberries and their ilk are much nicer than strawberries!
