When to Plant Strawberries - Strawberry Plants
Wondering when to plant strawberries? Strawberry plants are usually planted in the Spring in most gardens, but you can get away with planting them in the Fall season and have no problems. Trouble is, strawberries are not huge sellers in the Fall season so most nurseries don't carry them this late in the year. But if you already have your own bed of strawberries and are wanting to start a new strawberry bed, you can transplant strawberry plants safely in either Spring or Fall. Actually, we move strawberry plants throughout the year without problems. If you move the plants in Summer, you just have to make sure that the strawberries are kept watered until they become somewhat established. A couple of weeks of supplemental watering usually does the trick. It also helps to transplant the strawberries early in the morning. Remember to plant strawberries where they will get full sunlight as it is all-important for optimal strawberry production.
