One of my successes last year was to start Alpine Strawberries from seed and get fruit the same year. The varieties I started last year were Alexandria and Delicious. Here are some in a strawberry pot-
Alpine Strawberries have small delicate berries, but with a more intense flavor than large strawberries. They also keep blooming and fruiting all the way until frost. It is fun to look for the little fruits, and they make a neat and well-behaved plant in the border. I'm trying to work them into more of my borders where they add a lot of charm. The Wood running strawberry will have to be planted where it can spread. It is already making runners in the pots as a seedling.
