Way back in March I planted some strawberry seeds in an attempt to prolong the strawberry season.  We are surrounded by fields of them here and I am always really sad when the season is over.  I bought seeds of the everbearing variety Florian F1 and sowed them.

 A few weeks later they sprouted and I could already taste them.

This is what they look like now.  No, I did not accidentally post an old picture.  For some reason they did not make it and I am back to square one.  It really shouldn't matter because now I have these (incidentally they are doing great and I will post about them again soon) from Marie, but it is a matter of pride for me now.  Florian wants to play hard, I can do that.


  1. Jawohl, zeig mal dem fiesen Florian wo die Harke hängt... Du kriegst das bestimmt hin. Vielleicht einfach mal die anderen guten Berries daneben stellen, so bekommt Florian Ehrgeiz auch so schön zu wachsen... ;-)

  2. I have had the worst experiences trying to grow strawberries here. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong but they all die or just never bear fruit.

    Funnily enough, the plant that didn't do anything last year -and that I left on my balcony all winter in a corner- actually came up green again around Easter and now has 3 green little berries growing! I'm shocked!

  3. @ Tesca - Ich werde mein bestes geben.
    @ Juliette - You give me hope.

  4. Poor little things, I have 2 black thumbs can't grow a thing!
    good luck!


Always happy to hear from you!
