Plant details

Alpine strawberries are neat attractive plants without the tendency to spread far and wide by long runners. They bear small white flowers almost continuously from June until the autumn frosts, together with prolific crops of small tender fruits, sharply conical and fleshy, with a distinctive aromatic flavour. Regular watering and feeding improves size and yield. They are excellent edging plants, and tolerate the shade of shrubs and deciduous trees. Plants can be multiplied regularly by division, although seed-raised plants are often more vigorous.
