Strawberry 'Mignonette' is a wood alpine strawberry that produces masses of dainty red, sweet berries all summer. The plants are bushy and don't produce any runners, making them ideal for containers and hanging baskets. If treated like a half-hardy annual and sown early under glass, these strawberries should flower and fruit the first year from seed. Fruits are borne throughout the summer and autumn and, being a perennial, plants fruit again in future years. They prefer a moist and shaded position, an advantage in itself as most gardens have such a spot hidden away.

Sowing Advice

Sow alpine strawberry seeds from late winter to early spring at 21C (68F) on the surface of a good quality seed compost. Keep the soil damp but not wet and do not exclude light as this helps germination. Place in a propagator or seal the seed tray inside a polythene bag until after germination, which usually takes 14-30 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors.
