Growing through the winter?

They are in border in my greenhouse at the moment looking very healthy and got runners.

Lost them last yr,I am trying once again.

Do I keep watered and should I feed them.

Really do not want to loose the plants.

Hi Kathleen,

While I have not yet tried growing strawberries in my greenhouse, I did find some interesting links.

It looks possible, but a little tricky. I would be interested to know how yours do over winter. You probably already know that they do not produce much in the first year. I would like to give this a try too which means I should start this year, if I am going to have any next winter. That would be neat: strawberries during winter. I also have a couple of tomato plants in my greenhouse which are just starting to bear fruit and it would be nice if I find that I can grow them year round.

Another good article.

WINTER STRAWBERRY PRODUCTION IN GREENHOUSES USING SOILLESS
SUBSTRATES: AN ALTERNATIVE TO METHYL BROMIDE SOIL FUMIGATION

Soilless may be the way to go, since it eliminates some of the problems in growing them in a greenhouse.
