How do I winter Strawberries in ZONE 5b we have a very short growing season and are at 9000 feet. We tend to get a perma frost

Sharron, you can lift your plants and save the runners with roots started. If no runners then just use the plants. Wrap them in sacking and keep dry and out of the frost until you are ready to plant them. Then water well and plant as usual. They will take a little while to get started, starting them inside in pots might help.
