Fruit Strawberry Alexandria 100 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Alexandria Strawberries are alpine strawberries from seed. Day-neutral. These decorative little plants produce delicious, aromatic red strawberries, about twice the size of wild berries but much smaller than the standard type. Perennials, Alpine strawberries stay compact and produce few runners, making them suitable for rock gardens, path edgings, pots, and window boxes. They begin producing the second spring, sometimes the first fall. Grows best in zones 5 to 8. Red ripe strawberries in 2nd year, some the first year. Germination rate 70% or better.
Our Non-GMO seeds are sustainable. Our packaging is environmentally friendly, climate friendly, reusable, and recyclable.
Growing tip: Put seeds in a container with a piece of fine sandpaper and shake. This will increase germination rate and decrease the time needed for germination.

We cannot possibly put all the directions you need for growing strawberries in your area on the seed package. We recommend that you read articles or check with other gardeners in your area.
This is an heirloom seed, meaning it has been passed down from generation to generation for at least 75 years. As a rule, heirloom seeds taste better and will grow the same year after year.
These are also open pollinated meaning they will reproduce themselves. While all heirlooms are open pollinated not all open pollinated seeds are heirlooms.
Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
Freshly Packed: These seeds are packed for the current growing season and will provide high germination rates next year as well.SPECIAL NOTE: Strawberries are hard to germinate, and we recommend that only season veterans try them. They can take up to 4 to 6 weeks to germinate in a lab under ideal conditions. We recommend that they be started in 4 x 4 black pots using a germination mix. They need to be kept between 65 and 75 degrees. Here in Texas, these guys have lived through six-degree weather and can handle temps as high as 90, even higher when covered with 30 shade cloth. Plant them in an area where they can keep growing.
