Alpine Strawberry

Regular price £3.00
Unit price  per 

The Baron von Solemacher alpine strawberry is an antique German variety that yields dainty clusters of deep red, sweet and juicy berries, which can be up to 25 mm in diameter. Although we aren’t sure who the Baron was, we know that this variety was first offered by F.C. Heinemann, a German seed merchant, in 1935. Alpine strawberries are hardy perennial plants that will flower and fruit from late spring until the first frosts. It’s also an early-fruiting variety – the first strawberries may develop as quickly as 3 months after sowing. They make a joyous addition to pastries but are also popular in their raw state – young and old alike will love the sweetness and heady aroma of these strawberries, which fill any room with a beautiful fragrance.

CARING
Expert tip Tiny strawberry seeds require a bit of patience, but don’t give up on them. Sow them on the surface and don’t cover them. Be sure not to let the soil dry out – not even for a few hours. For best results, keep the soil temperature at around 20°.
