I really want to grow strawberry plants from seed

LuvflowersNancy HarrisJanet Pizaro


i have great success growing tomato plants from a single piece of old tomato and would love to do the same with strawberries but so far it has not worked and i would rather not use pre grown starter plants. any ideas? i have tried scraping seeds of the strawberry and putting in dirt, no success.

    what kind of soil did you plant the seeds in?

      same as i use for tomato seedlings, very light and airy soil. specifically for starter plants

    I have never had any success growing strawberries from seed either but am very interested in this. we are planting whole strawberries this year as a trial, so far nothing but we are early on. we have purchased strawberry seeds with no luck. I have a huge strawberry bed, it's just something on my 'wish list'.

    Try mixing the seeds with manure then plant.
