Strawberry- Alpine

I've tried multiple times but have had no luck. They germinate and grow tiny true leaves but then stall, never get any bigger than a few mm wide, then die off. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Strawberry- Alpine

Most incredible strawberry EVER! There is nothing that comes close to the delicious fragrance and otherworldly flavour of these. I knew these growing up in France as “fraises des bois”- woodland strawberries- and am so thrilled to be able to grow them myself. They’re pretty forgiving- the hardest thing is waiting until they’re as ripe as possible (which is longer than you think!). You should be able to smell the fruit from a metre away (it smells like strawberry flavouring

Strawberry- Alpine

Seeds work well and many alpine strawbs sprouted. After waiting for them to grow I was a tad disappointed in the flavour and decided to give space back to my regular strawberries. They would work great as a border.
