When and Where to Plant

Strawberries are sold in nurseries as bare-root, dormant plants or six-packs of plants already growing. They are usually available in fall and from January through mid-February. Six-packs, which resemble egg cartons, often are sold in late February or spring. Bare roots tend to be cheaper.

There are three basic ways to grow strawberries: in pots (especially if space is limited); in the ground; and in raised beds. The primary reason for planting strawberries on raised beds is for drainage, but also to protect from the heat.
