Among berry crops strawberry can be called one of the most frost-resistant. Its favorable wintering is possible only under the protection of snow cover. Long-term decrease of temperature to minus 10 ° С in the absence of snow, causing frostbite plants, and at minus 15 ° C, they can die. At thickness of a snow cover 25-30 cm strawberry carries frosts to 30 °С
The winter resistance of strawberries depends not only on the resistance to frost, but also on the location of the site, its care during the vegetation period, the age of the plants. Winter hardiness decreases due to lack of moisture in the soil, its sealing, leaf damage to pests and diseases. The accumulation of moisture and the removal of mustaches on fruiting shrubs create conditions for their normal wintering.
