I'm new here, so forgive me if this has been asked and answered, but I have a simple question.
I live in Alabama. I bought bare root Ozark Beauty strawberries thinking I would plant them in the fall. Well, reading up on things it seems that storing these things until the heat breaks probably isn't a good idea.
The question is how to plant these things now and get a decent survival rate.
1. Plant them in containers and put them near a big window I have in my bathroom that gets 6+ hours of sun per day. Normal temperature in the house is 77 degrees. Obviously warmer when someone takes a shower, but it cools quickly.
2. Plant them in a container and put them on my front porch. It gets sun all day but it's hot right now (90's + every day)
3. Plant them in a container and put them on the north side of my house. It gets about 4-6 hours of sun in the afternoon.Still gets pretty warm even though it's in the shade.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
