Strawberry Alpine Collection
The delicate flavours of these summer jewels are a regular addition to our Heronswood dessert menu, but we have to grow our own as they are not available through the markets as they are far too refined for the rigors of commercial production. Get ready to taste the difference with this collection of these mall but fruitful favourites. Collection include one plant each of 'Yellow Wonder', 'Gold Leaf' and 'Mignonette'.
Alpine strawberries are easy to grow and do not spread by runners. Fertilise with compost and blood and bone each year. Makes a wonderful, fruiting ground cover. Plant in a mound to improve drainage and water regularly, especially during the growing and fruiting months. Prefers part shade or protection from the hot afternoon sun.
