in Fruit & veg
Dear all fellow gardeners professional or hobbiest (like me!)...
can anyone help?!
I have some strawberries growing in my fruit and veg patch and have recently noticed that one of the strawberries has started to sprout leaves from its seeds.
After a quick look online I found a picture and description of "strange Russian strawberry" which, given a little more time, I believe my strawberry will look the same. The blurrb under the picture just says biologists dont know why, and that they have been seen in Siberia... I live in Kent!!!
Here is the Russian strawberry

and heres a picture of my strawberry...

Any help/ advice/ info/ etc very much appriciated.
All the best, Garden Monkey X
At a guess, this has been encouraged by the wet weather and the strawberries being constantly damp.
You will sometimes find tomato seeds sprouting within the tomato, too.
I have found it in squashes too.
Thank you,but why only one and not more or all?
