In your area strawberries would normally be planted from August to November but I suggest you could plant them most times. They take about 11 weeks to begin fruiting. Make sure you plant your strawberries in an open, sunny position where they will get good air circulation because fruit rotting in humid areas a problem.

I thought I would let you know that I was referring to plants, not seeds. Seeds of the main varieties is not normally availanle and can take some weeks to germinate and a whole season to bear fruit.
