Mine are planted on the western side of my citrus trees and they are all happy and doing well.
I find the biggest and best strawberries to be on new season runners. The older the plant, the smaller the berries. They need plenty of water at regular intervals and are hungry (not nitrogen rich stuff though). I use them as a ground cover for an ornamental bed and they seem happy enough under camellias. Mum gets at least 1kg of fruit per plant off her strawberries each season. She plants fresh each year.
