encouragement for impatient types - alpine strawberries!
I have had strawberry fever all winter.
I am impatient so I thought why not just try? I figured worst case scenario, I would see some cute leaves, get to know how painful the germination really is, and practice for a more appropriate time later in early spring.
Some of my plants have really taken off. One in particular is really thriving.
I have been pollinating these myself using various methods. I am just growing them in pots I had lying around, under a $20 4ft T8 shop light. I have moved my favorite to my desk with a cheap run-of-the-mill clamp light on it 24/7.
