Strawberries need 8 hours of full sun each day. A minimum of 6 is required for them to grow properly, but giving them 8–10 hours of direct sunlight per day is the approach that will lead to the best results.
Strawberries thrive in bright sunlight and enjoy warm temperatures and moist soil. Even more than 10 hours of full sun won’t usually harm this delicious fruit.
Sun-scorch is only something to worry about if the region where you live typically experiences extremely hot temperatures. If this is the case, shading them a bit in the afternoon should prevent problems.
