Strawberries are perennials and are generally planted in the spring or the fall. If planted in the fall, the plants should produce a full crop the next spring. When planted in the spring, you will get a light crop. Some say pick off those early blooms the first year. I say bunk, they make perfectly good strawberries and don't hurt the young plant at all IMO. If you find some potted strawberries locally, you could transplant those most any time, but be sure and give adequate water if done during the hot part of the summer. Here in the south, I think that strawberries do best with only morning and early afternoon sun, as late afternoon and evening sun is too harsh on the plants. Once established, don't let the plants make too many new plants via runners each year. Don't let the bed get over crowded. Also it is good to either renovate and renew your bed every two or three years or and might be even better to simply start a new bed in a different location using fresh disease free plants.
