Overwintering strawberries zone 9
I've had my strawberries growning in a raised bed. Now that the berry season is over I don't know how to care for the plants until next year.
I need to move them out of the raised bed to make room for other crops so I will plant them in pots. I will plant the runners in pots until they have rooted.
My question is:
Do I keep watering the older plants or do I let them die down naturally and resume watering when the growing season starts again?
Assuming that I am supposed to let them die down, here is a follow up question:
Do I keep watering the parent plants as well as the runner plants until they have rooted or do I only water the runner plant?
I'd be greatful for any advice. I have searched the internet for information but have not been able to find any.
