HOW TO GROW STRAWBERRIES FROM SEED
Most strawberry plants are cultivated hybrids that won't grow true from seed, however they will if there are species plants such as the alpine varieties or one of the new range of F1 cultivars that are now available.
These seeds can be lightly sown onto a seed tray filled with John Innes ‘seed and potting’ compost.
Cover the seeds with a thin layer of compost - no more than 1/4 inch - and gently water in.
Transfer the seed tray to a cold, greenhouse or even a well lit room as both are suitable for germination which should take anywhere between 2 and 8 weeks.
Once germinated, the seedlings can be gently lifted and potted on into 9 cm pots using John Innes 'No.1' or 'No.2'.
Come the following autumn they should be ready to transplant outside ready for fruiting the following year.
