    Good idea and Yes, I “refresh” them every year to be honest.

    Dynamite, thanks for askig the question. I have some strawberries which I had been hoping to move in the autumn to let them get established before winter but it sounds like I will still have an opportunity in the spring.

    Quick update..... I moved them today into some large pots rather than into a bed. I needed the raised bed space that they were in and didn’t have time to create a new border.

    Kind Regards.............Rob

    Just high jacking your thread Dynamite, hope that's ok:-)

    Ideally I'd like to move my strawberries from my backyard pots to my new allotment by the end of October, any obviously problems with this?

    Personally think it will be fine. They seem really hardy plants

    If you're just planting out the whole pot, you can do that at any time of year.
    Although frankly even bare root will probably survive at any time if you keep them watered. I transplanted a few strawberries in July and they seem fine.

    If you're going to split them up or otherwise disturb the roots a lot, I'd at least wait until October, but otherwise I'd say go right ahead.
