Strawberry Red Wonder Seeds
Info: Strawberry `Red Wonder` is a true flavour wonder: the small fruits pack an amazing amount of flavor in each berry. Pop just one in your mouth, and you`ll experience the intense, true taste of strawberries. This runnerless Alpine variety forms tidy mounds that make it a superb edging plant for mixed borders and raised beds. It keeps a neat shape at the edges of containers and window boxes, too.
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.
