    Is it too late to transplant strawberries to a new raised bed? Or are they hardy enough to be transplanted any time?

    We are transplanting them all the time as they make new plants. We are in zone 8.

    We are in zone 5, and you can transplant strawberries here in the fall. They are tough. Just be sure the roots don't get dried out too much after you plant them.

    I'm so happy! I may have a start on some strawberry plants that can take our sodden, hot Florida summers! I don't know how I got so lucky, but out of the few strawberry plants I bought this past spring, one survived and started making runners. Most people down here don't even try to weather them over the summer because the heat and humidity just rots them away.
    Please pray for the Floridians that hurricane Charley hurt. Thank you.
