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. David’s Garden Seeds is a Veteran owned business that has been offering quality seeds since 2009.
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. Plant them in an area where they can keep growing.
