Patti, strawberry beds should be covered over with at least 2" of dried leaves or straw during the Winter months. Strawberries are very hardy, but still need to be protected where the ground freezes in the winter.
Remember that strawberry plants
with established roots should be planted with the top of the crown above the soil line. plants
from runners, that don't have roots yet, should be pushed down into the soil just a little bit, then kept moist so they can send roots down on their own.
Since you're building raised beds... If there's a lot of clay in your soil, you might want to get some sand to mix in with it. (Good drainage is important for Strawberries, as they don't like having their feet wet.)
Rosey, I hope you have a place to plant
your strawberries where they'll get full sun all day long. They can take some
shade & still do well, but the more sun, the better.
