Strawberry Four Seasons Seeds
Info: Strawberry `Four Seasons` is a little strawberry variety which is well suited for growing on balconies, in pots, in large containers and small gardens. The plant constantly forms new flowers and guarantees strawberries all year round. It is prolific and produces very sweet, delicious and medium-sized fruits from the second year on. Four Seasons is generally regarded as a hardy plant, so this plant will survive close to or on freezing temperatures.
Sowing & cultivation: Sow indoors in February/March or outdoors from April on. Seeds germinate best after cold treatment. Place the sealed packet in the freezer for 2-4 weeks. Cover seeds only lightly with soil. When the plants get their second set of true leaves, thin them out, leaving three to four inches between plants. Or, replant them into separate containers. Strawberries do not like wet roots, preferring a well-drained site with a preferably slightly acid, medium loam. They tolerate shade but thrive in sunshine. To avoid diseases, you should plant strawberries in a 3-year-cycle at new locations in the garden.
