Transplanting strawberries

(Question)

When is the best time to transplant strawberries?

(Answer)

In Ontario, the best time to plant (or transplant) strawberries is in the early  spring. Flower buds are usually produced in fall, so if plants are moved then, the  plants’ energy is diverted to root production to the detriment of blossoms and fruiting  for the next season.
