I was a little nervous about starting strawberries from seed. The seeds are so tiny, but they grew. Very impressed at how they turned out. The kids loved looking for tiny berries and we even found a baby bunny hiding in our patch one day, he must have liked the berries too.
Alexandria Alpine Strawberry
UNAVAILABLE FOR 2016. We recommend Reine des Vallees as a substitution.
Known for it’s high yields, this strawberry really performs. If you want lots of sweet little berries, Alexandria is your strawberry.
Minimum 50 seeds per packet.
I should preface that I have not eaten a strawberry as of yet, because I read to pinch off all starts the first year to really make strong plants. this was my first time to grow strawberry from seed and I was amazed--they start so tiny! I was so encouraged that I am going to try some more varieties and make a separate little strawberry patch to enjoy. I cant wait!
We wanted to try the alpine strawberry, and once we got them growing, they are pretty strong. This was the only of the three varieties that we tried that made it to the "adult" stage. it doesn't need to be babied as much! we ended up planting them by our chickens, in our raised garden beds, in potted plants and in our garden. I think they do best in the ground. they are so small every time we find one it's like finding a little gem of a treasure. I still prefer ever or june bearing, but this was something fun and different to try. my kids and CHICKENS really like searching for them and gobbling them up.
