Hi all,

I was given some strawberry cuttings earlier this year, I potted them into a large round pot and had them in a cold frame outdoors.

I put some manure around them but recently noticed some tiny flies on the plants.. I have re-potted them again in compost and soil mix seperate pots, I have now put them in a small greenhouse I have.

I wonder if this will be ok over the winter months or should I leave them outdoors ? 

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you :)

    They're hardy - they should be outdoors.  image

    As they're still small plants , you can tuck them against a wall or somewhere sheltered if you like. They'll die back over winter, although, if it's mild, they'll often keep producing new foliage. 

    I often leave potted runners in amongst other plants in a border. image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
