|I'm in zone 5 (central Maine) - I was thinking about making a large hugelbed 3-4' tall - thats supported by pallets and transplanting my strawberries into it. Do you think they will over winter okay? My first thought is they need the winter snow blanket for protection. Input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)|

|You may have success with varieties that are hardy to Zone 2 or some of the Alpine varieties. Your concern of "mulching" for winter is valid and I think it would be tough to overwinter strawberry plants in that scenario.|

|On the other hand, I have strawberries growing in an old water tank and they overwinter just fine. However, the tank is not nearly that tall.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
