250 Organic Native Perennial Wild Strawberry Seeds - Heirloom & Non-GMO
Wild Strawberry - Baron (Fragaria Vesca Baron Solemacher) - Grow Strawberry seeds for this old-fashioned favorite ground cover plant. Known as Wild Strawberry, Woodland Strawberry or Alpine Strawberry, this wild Fragaria Vesca is very hardy and a strong grower. This edible, cold tolerant Strawberry is known to have been harvested and eaten by stone-age man, traded from Europe along the Silk Road into Asia. Alpine Strawberry plants have quite a history! Wild Strawberries do not send out runners like other Strawberry plants do, so they are easier to contain and keep them where you desire for them to grow.
Growing Fragaria Vesca From Seed: Sow the Strawberry seeds from January to April indoors. Use quality seed starter mix, and small pots or starter trays. Sow the Wild Strawberry ground cover seeds on the surface and press the seed into the mix. Keep the soil damp but not wet, and seal the starter tray or pots inside a plastic bag until after germination. When the Strawberry seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into 3 inch pots, and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. After all danger of frost has passed, harden the young Wild Strawberry plants over a period of 7 - 10 days before planting outdoors in their permanent location.
