Have you read our planting and care guide? Take time to pack in the soil around the roots so there are no gaps and opportunity for the roots to freeze. Mulch and water Vanilla Strawberry well. It can be a hassle but be sure to water from time to time over the winter. Especially, if you have a dry winter. If there is a broken branch or two, feel free to trim it off but don’t do any additional pruning. Other than that, just enjoy.
