June Bearing Strawberries and Shade

Posted by kellynola 9 (My Page) on

I have a SFG bed that gets only partial sun in the winter and early spring but full sun in the summer and fall. I have a hard time growing things in it during the winter months and was wondering if it might be a good spot for June bearing strawberries.

Do the plants need full sun year round or is it only important when they are flowering?

Any advice would be great.

You might ask on the fruits forum if you don't get an answer here. This year is my first for strawberries, so I'm no help...
