Alexandria Alpine Strawberry (100-120 Days)

4 reviews

Alpine strawberries are a treat when you are working away in the garden and their flavor is so much more delectable than standard strawberries. This variety doesn't take up much space with compact-sized plants that produce few runners. We have ours growing as a border in the herb garden or tuck a few plants into the corners and edges of the vegetable or flower garden. They will grow successfully in containers if ground space is hard to find. Day Neutral. Zones 5-8.

20 seeds 

 

PLANTING

Fragaria vesca

Germination: 14-30 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 65-75ºF. 

Seed Sowing Depth: On the surface, needs light to germinate

Starting Indoors: 10-12 weeks before the last frost. Cold treat seed by sowing into moist soil or a paper towel, wrap in a clear plastic bag, and place in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks. After cold treatment provide 65-75ºF soil temperatures until germination. Transplant after last frost and when plants have at least 3 sets of leaves, 12" apart.

Sowing Outdoors: Not recommended

Tips- Plant in well-drained, sandy loam to fertile soil amended with compost. Mulch with straw to keep weeds down. To encourage strong seedling root growth pull off flowers for a month or two after transplanting.

    Good germination

    Was a bit wary after reading poor reviews, but these are thriving. The seeds are few and super tiny. I put them in a slightly damp paper towel in a sealed bag in the freezer for 2 weeks, followed planting instructions. Nearly every seed germinated!

    These seeds were quite difficult to sprout, only got a few plants from the pack of seeds. Would recommend buying strawberry plants, not seeds.

    Alpine strawberries seed

    Unfortunately I had zero germination, I bought the seeds too late in the spring to cold treat them as recommended so I looked for advice from the online community and found some people who said they had luck without cold treating the seeds
