Preparing Strawberries For Winter

OK... I got the mulch part right, but apparently I trimmed them too soon.

Preparing strawberries for winter involves little more than covering them with hay or some other breathable mulch that will give them some protection from the frost.

I trimmed mine as well, but I'm reading now that this is not always beneficial, as this can stimulate new growth which can be damaged by the cold (makes sense).

Oops ;-) Next time I'll do some research before heading outside with my pruning shears...
