Product Description

Alpine Strawberry Seeds

Alpine strawberry seeds are fairly easy to grow. This is a variety of wild strawberry that is a little more colder tolerant. They are very prolific plants and will produce berries in the first year. Alpine strawberries are everbearing and will produce berries from early June until the first frost arrives. The berries taste sweet and tangy, they grow on compact, runnerless plants. Alpine strawberries can be grown in the shade but they won’t be able to produce berries. To produce as many berries as possible and to maximize the flavour you will want to plant them in a location with full sun. To maximize berry production and to produce a sweeter berry, the plants will  need at least 6 hours of sunlight each day.

Alpine strawberries are a hardy perennial and will do well once established. You can sow them indoors in early spring, and then transplant them once they are a good size and when there is no risk of frost outside. If you would like to learn more on how to grow strawberries click here.

An easy project is to make your own plastic pots by cutting the top off of pop bottles. Fill it with some store bought (sterilized) soil, surface sow the seed, and press seed into soil (needs light to germinate). It’s a very easy project to get your strawberries started early.

Strawberry Tea

A tea can be made out of the berries and leaves. There are many purported health benefits provided from it, treating ailments such as: protecting against degeneration of the eyes, arthritis and gout, high blood pressure, heart disease, improving cognitive function, treatment for diarrhea, and more.
