1.After buying the strawberry seeds, place them in the freezer for 2 weeks. This will improve the percentage of seeds that
will germinate, when you plant them. Freezing stimulates the natural process of the seed going through the winter months and
will help jump start the strawberry seeds when you plant them.
2.Prepare your seed tray. The soil should be an inch deep. A mixture of peat moss and organic rich soil is just right
to start the strawberries.
3.Sprinkle the seeds over the damp soil mixture and add a light dusting of peat moss over the top. The meat moss should
completely cover the strawberry seeds, but not too thick.
4.Keep the seeds moist and in direct sunlight. The strawberry seeds can take 2-3 weeks to germinate. Once the strawberry
plants have sprouted,wait for the 3rd true leaves to transplant into bigger containers.
5.When the 3rd leaves have appeared, you will want to transplant the strawberry plants into larger pots. If weather permits,
the plants can be planted right outside. Continue to care for the plants, keeping it well drained and moist and providing
slightly alkaline soil.
6.If strawberry flowers appear in its first year, pick all flowers off the plant. This will insure the plant is established
well, before producing fruit. After the strawberry plant has gone through its first winter, it will be ready to produce fruit
the next summer.
