Can I transplant strawberry plants?
I believe that I have planted my berries in the wrong spot. . . not enough sun. They have produced but they are small and not real sweet. I would like to transplant them to a new bed that is in full sun and has good drainage. Is this possible? They have already started blooming and I do have some berries already. I am in southeast Texas, Deep SET. . . Help

You can transplant them, though you may want to wait if they are already producing. This is up to you, of course, but once transplanted they will likely lose any blooms/fruits that may be on them as the plants will be needing this energy for re-establishing their roots while acclimating to the new surroundings.

Thank you so much...yea I figured that it would be better to wait, they produced alot the first year, they were not real big but they tasted good...not as sweet as I think they should be...they really needed to be in a sunnier spot...Thanks again and I will check out the article you posted!
