Strawberry Seeds

Useful gardening information

Select an area of your garden that receives full sunshine as this is one of the main ingredients for a sweet crop. They will grow in areas that are sunny most of the day, but really need full sun to develop to their fullest and sweetest potential. Once planted, strawberries will produce well for three to four years. So, select a location that will not be disturbed. While strawberries like lots of water, they need well drained soil. This is accomplished by creating raised rows. Add fertilizer and compost into the soil and elevate the rows a few inches above the garden soil level. This will allow those heavy spring rains to quench your plants' thirst, but drain away any excess water. Space rows three to four feet apart to allow room to walk and harvest between the rows.

Sowing Instructions

Easy to grow in containers, moisture must be maintained and plants should be fed once a week with soluble plant food when fruiting. Cover seeds lightly in warm soil. Keep soil moist until seeds germinate. Will germinate in 21-45 days.

Indian Strawberry Seeds

SF140 Tuttifrutti Indian Strawberry ( Duchesnea indica )
This rare ground cover plant will get second looks! It's a Strawberry plant with lovely yellow blooms, and it produces small red Strawberries all summer long on a creeping evergreen carpet. Tuttifrutti is well-suited for hanging over a wall or as a ground cover plant.
Duchesnea Indica is naturalized throughout the United States, and it is found growing in shady places in woods and grassy slopes. Prefers a moist, but well-drained soil in a partially sunny position. Once plants are established, the matted root sends out runners to set new plants. Indian Strawberry leaves are light green and finely haired.
The small, yellow flowers are 5 petaled, and first appear in April and will bloom throughout the summer until fall. The fruit is small, about 1/2 inch round. It is edible, but many say the taste is un-noteworthy. Birds, however, love the red fruit. Grows about 5" tall. Hardy to zone 5.
