Alpine Strawberry VST-5510



Perennial with no runners.

Like a wild strawberry in size and intense, old-fashioned flavor.

Popular for edging flower beds, in edible landscapes, or window boxes.

Bears the second spring from seed, and can crop all summer. Good in any well drained soil.

BOTANICAL NAME: Fragaria alpina


Begin in flats in very early spring or fall, in milder climates-seeds will sprout better with a period of moist cold. Transplant 12" apart to well-drained, well-composted soil when plants have several leaves. Likes soil that is light, rich loam, not too alkaline, and must drain well in winter. First real crop is in the following spring. Best to move the strawberry bed every four years or so, replanting the strongest young plants into well-dug, composted soil.

Difficult to Establish
on 01/24/17 by Matt in Winthrop MA

I had a tough time getting these seeds to germinate and could not get a crop established in year one. Maybe year two will be easier.
