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.

While I have not yet tried growing strawberries in my greenhouse, I did find some interesting links. http://www.hort.cornell.edu/department/faculty/pritts/grnhouse.html http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/agcomm/magazine/summer04/greenhouse.htm http://msucares.com/crops/comhort/strawberries.html http://www.ext.vt.edu/news/periodicals/commhort/2000-06/2000-06-04.html http://www.ars.usda.gov/is/AR/archive/nov98/hydro1198.htm http://www.lsu.edu/lsutoday/980424/pageone.html 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 http://www.hos.ufl.edu/ProtectedAg/FSHS2003winterstrawberry.pdf Soilless may be the way to go, since it eliminates some of the problems in growing them in a greenhouse.
