Question: 

My strawberry plants are growing in a strawberry pyramid. How do I protect the plants over winter?

Answer: 

A strawberry pyramid is a type of raised bed.  In winter, temperatures in raised beds may be several degrees colder than ground level plantings.  Because of colder temperatures, strawberry plants growing in raised beds require more protection that ground level sites.  Place 6 to 8 inches of straw or chopped cornstalks on strawberry pyramids or other raised beds in fall.
