    Plant strawberry plants during March in the eastern part of the state; in the western part of the state and in the mountains, plant them in late March to April.
    Harvest
    In eastern North Carolina, strawberries are ready for harvest starting in April. If you plant in the western part of the state, anticipate growth in early May, while mountain strawberries are ready for harvest at the end of May. Pick strawberries in the morning, while they are still cool.
    Soil
  • My girlfriend in Asheville planted her patch in the middle of April. They did have some freeze warnings, a lot of wind and rain, but they are hanging in there and looks like it will be Memorial Day Weekend for her first significant harvest.
