What are the best growing conditions for strawberries?

Strawberries want to flower and come to harvest in cool to warm weather. The ideal temperature for strawberry growing is 60°F to 80°F; those temperatures allow strawberries to develop strong roots and take up nutrients necessary to produce lots of flowers and fruit.

Beside this, do strawberries grow well in shade?

Partial Shade. Strawberry plants don't do well in full shade, but so long as they receive at least six hours of direct sunlight per day they will grow in areas of partial shade.

What month of the year do you plant strawberries?

Everbearing (or "long day") and day neutral strawberry varieties are typically planted just after the last frost of spring, which is usually sometime in April in the northern hemisphere, and October in the southern hemisphere. However, as mentioned above, they can be planted anytime up to a month before frosts begin.

Can strawberries grow in warm climates?

Strawberries flower and fruit in cool to warm temps (60-80 F. or 16-27 C.), so spring planting of strawberries in hot summer climates is doomed to fail. Strawberries may be hard to come by in late summer, as nurseries do not usually carry at that time.
