Alpine Strawberry, also known as Fraises des Bois or Woodland Strawberry, has white flowers and small, very flavorful crimson berries throughout the season. Jefferson sowed three rows of Alpine Strawberry seeds on March 31, 1774. In a letter to James Monroe some twenty years later, Jefferson included Alpine Strawberry as one of the "three objects which you should endeavor to enrich our country with." This European wildflower makes a compact, mounded plant that spreads by runners.

Sow seeds indoors 8-12 weeks before last frost date at 60˚F; may take up to 4 weeks to germinate. Transplant to 3” pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and plant outdoors after last frost in fertile, well-drained soil with consistent moisture. Approximately 50-60 seeds per packet.
