The biggest advantage to our fall strawberries is that they arrive ready to plant--and then berries are ready for picking the following spring, vs. spring-planted berries that take a full year to produce a harvest. Our strawberry plants are shipped to you in 2-inch pots, with healthy root systems already established. Plants start shipping August 15. We also have a couple of articles, Strawberry Growing Tips and How Many People Will a Strawberry Plant Feed? to help you succeed in your endeavor.
