How to Overwinter new strawberry plants?

I'm hoping this is an obvious question.

I am propagating (ie trying to) from strawberries to renew my stock.

Once they are in their pots, where do i keep them overwinter? Is it just on the patio or do they need to be in eg a cold frame to keep the frost away.

    They are completely hardy, no need to worry about them.

    Mine have never been protected in any way, even tiny runners in 3 inch pots.
    They just get on with snow/frost/rain/wind - everything going, as @edhelka says.  :)

    Another vote for the virtual indestructability of the strawberry  :)

    I wouldn't waste any space or time on mollycoddling them in any way. They're hard as nails!!!  B)
