Thats like Alpine strawberries, put a little bit of creativity into growing something unique and you get to eat something that some people will never get the chance too, so why would't you grow these rare and easy to grow fruits?
Here are my top 10 reasons for growing Alpine Strawberries.
Why you should invest in Alpine Strawberries
The best way to grow these little berries is in re-usable container's.
Any old empty container will do that once had food in it, just give it a rinse, poke a few holes in it for drainage, add your home made composted soil or store bought potting mix, sprinkle the seeds on top, water in and wait 10 or more days for germination. Containers I've used vary in what i'v consumed, Here are a few container suggestions...Yoghurt tubs, meat trays, egg cartons, tins, biscuit tray's, milk cartons...and I'm sure you'll find other re-usable items to use too.
The strawberries above germinated within 7 days as they were done indoors on the window cill, at the end of winter. The soil was constantly warm but always moist which I feel helped them to germinate faster.
You can of course sow yours out doors in a warm area, give them anywhere between 7-28 days to germinate.
Follow the below steps for success.
Planting your strawberries out into their new container homes will be one of the best things you'll ever do! Once they are in, they'll settle & root down into the soil, they are really hard to pull out once they are established. They're re drought tolerant & spring back once they die off and will forever bare fruit for years to come.
Keep the seeds from your best fruit and you'll have Alpine Strawberries to pass on to the next generation.
