Sow the seeds in the pot inside from March-April or Sept-Oct for early flowers the following year. When the plants in the pot are about 5 cm tall, carefully tip the pot upside down to loosen the compost. Transplant the seedlings individually into 8cm pots and keep growing. Plant out in the garden in May or September.
Alpine strawberries are a decorative, dwarf ground cover plant with beautiful white flowers followed by baby strawberries, approx 1cm long. What they lack in size they more than make up for in taste - the flavour is exquisite, especially when picked and eaten straight off the plant! Wild alpine strawberries will flower in spring/summer and provide food for pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
Not suitable for children under 3 years: expanding compost is a choking hazard. Adult supervision recommended. Pot diameter 8cm.
