I am hoping to have a plot in a community garden this year. I would LOVE to have strawberries, but the plot will not remain intact for the following year, unfortunately. What I'm wondering is...if I plant strawberries, is there a way to dig them up and save them until the following Spring? I'm in an apartment, so I really can't just put them in the ground somewhere at home until Spring, or I would do so in a heartbeat.
Am I better off just buying my strawberries at a u-pick and planting annual vegetable/herb plants in my plot?
