Strawberry 'Bush Alpine'
Far superior in fragrance and flavour to the plumped up supermarket hybrids, this bush alpine variety has been bred from wild strains collected in woodlands throughout Europe. The small runnerless plants make this the ideal edging plant for your vegie garden.
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.
