Strawberry Temptation Seeds
Info: Strawberry Temptation is a delicious `sweetheart` type. This easy to grow ever-bearing variety gives luscious, good sized dark red fruits in the first season. The plants are vigorous, compact and almost runnerless making Temptation ideally suited for hanging baskets or for use in grow bags or patio containers. It is also well suited to short season climates.
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.
