best time to transplant strawberries?
I've got a half-row of strawberries (Mara des Bois variety---luscious) which were such a hit this year that I want to rip up the row and transplant the plants to a full row to give them more room. I was waiting for them to set runners, but for some crazy reason, they didn't create more than a few runners all year. Not sure what that's all about---possibly overcrowding of the plants.
Question: is there any reason I can't do this transplanting operation in the fall, or should I wait for spring? Here in coastal San Diego area, we don't really get winter (no frost, not many chilling hours), so I'm thinking it should be OK to transplant now, but there may be a daylength issue I haven't considered. Might the transplants fare better with a lenthening daylength instead of a shortening one?
