My garden is raised beds, about 14 inches tall, in the strawberry one the compost I used as soil has seteeled over the years so I would like to add some to get the level back up. If I add an inch at a time , basically burriing the plants will that kill them?

I think that you shouldn't bury the crown of the plant. We have a couple varieties, also in raised beds, and from what I have read the crown should be at ground level not too deep or set too high but I don't know what would happen...maybe a crown rot? We replant every few years with new plants that have formed from the main plant...maybe you could wait until you replant the bed... Hopefully some strawberry expert will answer your question now.
