How to SowIn the garden: March - May.
Indoors: mid-January - February.
There are two ways to sow strawberries:
- In the garden, preferably in a sunny spot, from the beginning of March through to the end of May. Loosen the soil with a fork to a depth of at least 30 cm deep and draw a furrow 1 cm deep. Lable the row and mix the seed with some sharp sand. Sow between thumb and forefinger then cover with 0.5 cm soil. Press carefully down and sprinkle with water. Plant extra rows 45 cm apart.
- Indoor sowing can start mid January using an indoor propagator on the windowsill (fastest) or a cold frame/greenhouse. Use good, fine, seeding compost - a potting tray is also useful. Mix the seed with fine dry sand and sow evenly over the soil. Cover with a thin layer (max. 0.5 cm) press lightly down and sprinkle with water. Cover with lid or sheet of glass and remove this as soon as the seed germinates.
