    Depends how much space they have to grow. To get the best crop they should be grown separately, but I'm sure you'll get some return provided the strawberries have enough root space.

      Ok thanks for that, i just wanted to add interest to the tree pots, the pots are 70 litre size /60cm diameter. Can I move strawberries with frost on ground or should I wait?

      That is a good size so provided the pot is not full of tree roots they should be ok.

      Don't plant anything when the soil is frosty.
