This true wild strawberry, one of the parents of all cultivated varieties, produces uncountable masses of small but very sweetly-flavoured fruits from early summer until late autumn. Making a very low, steadily-running carpet of fruit, is perpetual fruiting and gives a constant supply of fruits unlike the larger cultivated forms. For a never-before-experienced treat, collect a small bowl full, leave them for an hour or so in a warm place, then smell them. You will experience a perfume like no other! It may self-seed into places where it is happy ensuring fruit all summer long. In the wild it grows naturally throughout much of the Northern Hemisphere.

Sowing Advice

Sow indoors. Surface sow onto well-drained compost, just cover with a fine layer of compost. Ideal temp. 16°C. Later sowings can be made in a cold frame. Germination could take 7-10 days but it might take 30 days before you will see an obvious sign of germination. temp. must be kept constant for successful germination. Once seedlings are large enough to handle transplant to 8cm pots and harden off. As soon as possible move into the final growing location with 50cm spacing.
