Alpine Strawberry Update

The alpine strawberry plants I'm starting under fluorescent lights are blooming! I found two flowers on Saturday. I was surprised to find any flowers this early, and I never thought they would bloom under artificial lights.

This means I should get some strawberries this year. If the plants overwinter successfully, they are supposed to get more productive as they get older.

If you still want to grow alpine strawberries this year, it is not too late to start. You may not get many berries before the end of the growing season, but they will produce more in their second year.
