Okay, I bought 4 strawberry plants and have managed to turn them into 20 plants over the summer.
I have pot grown all of them and don't have the space to plant them out.
My question is simple, how do I get them through the winter in pots?

If you are worried about frost killing them, then don't worry, it doesn't kill them. I've even heard some say that it actually improves the fruiting the following year if the crown of the strawberry plant gets a bit of frost in the winter.
