Hello my name is Reci and am new to gardening and I have a few questions.
I bought a strawberry hanging plant from Wal-Mart and planted it in the ground, after a friend told me that they grew back every year, and would multiply,  and I need to now how to winter them (I just want to be prepared for this cause don't know if it will take a while or not). I have never before had a fruit bearing plant so I have no clue how to do this can any one help me. Please  

 Thank you!!

Hi Rici and welcome to the forum!  We have topics on this subject.  Some people cover their strawberries with straw, some cover with leaves and some don't cover their strawberries at all.  Here is a link to winterizing strawberries.  https://squarefoot.forumotion.com/t14371-winterizing-strawberry-sfg?highlight=winterizing+strawberries

If you want to do a search for additional information, look to the left column at the top there is a "SEARCH' box.  You can type in what you want to search for and you should be able to find whatever information you would need.

And some folks mow them with a lawn mower... It all depends upon the type of berry plant you have. Your local Cooperative Extension Service will also have some good information about how to deal with the strawberry plants in your particular area.

Welcome, Reci! There are a number of approaches, and I would bet at least 25 cents your plant will survive the winter. But if you can find out what variety the plant is, it will help point you towards specific info.

Did the strawberry multiply if you can get to multiply then try and give away then if disaster happens to your strawberry there is a chance that the strawberry given away survives and they can give you one back.

How you treat a strawberry plant depends a lot on whether it is a June-bearing (big flush of fruit in early spring/summer) or an ever-bearing type (self-explanatory, but to elaborate: flush of early fruit, and a second less-exuberant fruit bearing later in the summer, which (if well watered/fed) will continue to produce fruit until cold weather.  The June-bearing types benefit from a radical cut back to inhibit its desire to send out LOTS of runners.  The ever-bearing types give you more fruit if you clip most of the runners, but save enough to start new plants.  (Strawberry plants are healthier and bear more fruit if they are between one and two years old._  Then there are the Granny Berries (a six-pack of almost-dead strawberry plants my mom rescued from the store, planted and which do everything the above-mentioned June-bearing AND ever-bearing plants do.  Additional benefit: some of the best strawberries I've ever tasted.  All our family would love to know the real name of this variety, but, heck, who really cares if they can get a start of Granny's strawberries.  (we did!)  Nonna
