I planted about 50 strawberry plants last fall in a less than ideal place, anticipating construction traffic over this summer. (Good harvest this summer.) I'd like to move them to a sunnier, permanent location now that the traffic is almost gone.

Anybody with experience/knowledge on this? Is fall or spring better? When in relation to frost dates?

Actually, now is the best time, after the worst of the summer heat is over (early fall). They can survive the frost as long as the roots can have a chance to become established before the first one comes, hopefully not for another 6-8 weeks. If you get frost earlier than late October, better to wait until spring, after the last hard freeze.

I would say that whether spring or fall is a better time to transplant would depend on whether you live in a warm or a cold climate, here in central Indiana, I can recall transplanting strawberry plants in early or mid April(this was a little bit earlier than what the people at the nursery recommended, so we had to provide protection against frosty or freezing temperatures),
So, what I can tell you is that in a cold climate like Indiana, spring would probably be a better time to transplant strawberries, and I would presume that in warmer climates that either spring or fall would work, hope I helped
